"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." Winston Churchill
As we do on this day each year, we pause to remember the men and women who died fighting for our freedom.
We stand by humbly, gratefully, silently, to honor their sacrifice.
We mourn for those lost
And we mourn for those theyve left behind
As we reflect once again on the the steep price of freedom.
By all means, enjoy your picnics, parades and celebrations today it is a holiday after all. But do pause to remember and honor all the brave Americans across the centuries who have sacrificed their lives in the fight against tyrants, tyrannies and terrorists;
the enemies of freedom who will always be amongst us and will always be a threat to liberty. And God willing, America will always be there to vanquish freedoms adversaries.
Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbors. - Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address, 1981
Wishing you all a tranquil, thoughtful Memorial Day.
