Memorial Day

Today in the U.S. we honor the veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice and died in the military for our country. It is an important day of remembrance.

Some interesting quotes to ponder in light of this day:

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived.”  –  General George S. Patton

“For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue.”  –  James A. Garfield

Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.”  –  Unknown

“No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.”  –  St. Ambrose

“May we never forget our fallen comrades. Freedom isn’t free.” –  Sgt. Major Bill Paxton

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter the words, but to live by them.”  –  John F. Kennedy
