Memorial Day - Let's always remember.

“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.” – Lee Greenwood

In a small tribute that will never be enough to thank American soldiers and their families for their sacrifices, I would like to leave some beautiful quotes and direct you to a History Channel's Memorial Day Tribute page. They have beautiful pictures and this video will surely make you cry.

And now for some quotes:

On thy grave the rain shall fall from the eyes of a mighty nation!  — Thomas William Parsons

We who are left how shall we look again
Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?

– Wilfred Wilson Gibson

Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations, that we have forgotten, as a people, the cost of a free and undivided Republic.  — John A. Logan
