Memorial Day

Memorial-Day-Quotes-And-Sayings

How many have died for their country? How many have we lost?

How many have given their lives for our freedom?

Here are just a few numbers…

          American Revolution – 25,000                Civil War – 655,000

                       World War I – 116,516                    World War II – 405,399

                   Korean War – 36,516                      Vietnam War – 58,209

      Gulf War – 294           War in Afghanistan – 2,216 — Iraq War – 4,497

This is what Memorial Day is all about. I certainly enjoy a good barbeque or time at the beach as much as anyone, but I cringe when I hear someone say “Happy Memorial Day.”

For this is a day of remembrance.

I think we must all take time out from our “kick off to summer” to remember all those who gave their lives for our freedom. Remember the mothers who lost their sons and daughters, those who lost their spouse, those children who group up without a parent because theirs made the ultimate sacrifice…

And it was for you.

God bless them, God bless the Gold Star families, and God Bless America!
