Memorial Day 2014

Lest we forget that this day started not as a “holiday” but as a day of somber remembrance, today’s Memorial Day post is dedicated to our country’s fallen heroes; the 1.4 million men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in wars waged across centuries in order to preserve the principles of freedom and liberty.

So let us pause a moment and bow our heads in their memory as we reflect what a different world we would live in, were it not for their sacrifice.


In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Let us also remember our part in the sacred trust between us and our warriors: they fight so that we might be free.

Refuse to be enslaved. To ensure they have not died in vain.


liberty v. tyranny choose wisely
