On Monday, May 31
we celebrate Memorial Day remembering all our military who lost their lives in the name of freedom. We pray that those who fought and died for our country did not die in vain. Their sacrifice and the sacrifices of their loved ones would live on to inspire others to live in freedom and to serve and love their beloved country and fellow citizens.
Abraham Lincoln in his 1863 Gettysburg Address said it best:
"That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
