In addition to the picnics, sporting events, and a three-day weekend, Memorial Day is a time to remember the brave men and women who died serving our nation and its values.
To show my appreciation for those who risked all ensuring our freedom, I collected a few inspiring quotes that highlight the true meaning of Memorial Day. The pictures are from my trip to Washington D.C. and one I will never forget.
“Who kept the faith and fought the fight; The glory theirs, the duty ours.” -Wallace Bruce
“The dead soldier’s silence sings our national anthem.” -Aaron Kilbourn
“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude America will never forget their sacrifices.” – President Harry Truman
“The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men.” -Minot J. Savage
“For love of country they accepted death.” -James A. Garfield
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. -Joseph Campbell
THANKS TO THOSE WHO GAVE ALL AND THOSE STILL SERVING.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
