Memorial DaY MusingS

We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.

To those still serving and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

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

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men.

Minot J. Savage

Sweet friends………
I am in awe. Yet it would appear that some are no wiser for their death.
I will go out and dance tonight…but…not for a moment forget the noble, gallant souls whom the Good Lord no doubt has offered passports straight to Heaven.

Let freedom not only ring, but scream in our ears and minds friends, and may we never ever forget those left behind.

God Bless America, Land that I love. unitedstates6.gif

    To Absent Comrades…….

    It seems odd to me that a nation that owes so much to its veterans only recognizes their sacrifice but a few days a year. It amazes me that, even in time of war, so few Americans actually take the…

    Absurd Glimpses of Memorial Day 2007…

    So why look at the “absurd” and “disrespectful” on this Day set aside to honor valor and sacrifice? We need to know what these people are up to.

    Nice post, Angel. Everyone should remember to hug a vet today, to celebrate their freedom to give that hug…

    The sight of those empty boots breaks my heart–and makes me so proud to be an American.

    God bless the military and their families!

    Memorial Day…

    Don’t forget our fallen soldiers today. All citizens of the United States owe these men and women a debt. We wouldn’t have the freedom we have without their brave sacrifices.

    God bless all our fighting men and women today plus their families….

  19. Defiant_Infidel says:

    With sweet bouquets of White Lilac, my wife and I will go now to the cemetary to remember and honor those who gave everything for us who remain free, thanks to their sacrifices. This is much more than a day “off”. This is a day to reiterate to our children the most important and astonishing portions of our history. This is a bittersweet time to savor the gifts that our military’s steadfast have guaranteed for us for many generations.

    God bless this beautiful country, the people who recognize the truth of how and why we are free and the selfless soldiers who guaranteed it for us.

    There will never be an appropriate or adequate statement of our appreciation.

    A beautiful tribute, Angel. Thank you, and even while you remember our soldiers, have a great time tonight! :)

    Enjoy your Memorial Day, Angel. Remember and honor those who serve and sacrifice on our behalf.

    Great job, Angel.
    Happy Memorial day to you, and God Bless! :)

  27. Yankee Doodle says:

    Great tribute, Angel!

    Memorial Day is for remembering our deceased service personnel, but it’s important to remember our service personnel while they are still alive, too, like I think most of the readers here do.

    We should also from time to time remember others whose public service is not in a military uniform.

    By the way, regarding military service personnel, don’t forget the Coast Guard. Even in peacetime, the USCG faces down heavily armed drug smugglers and deadly natural disasters. They also have a very real wartime mission deployed around the world.

    Great job, Angel!

    If these men only knew, and many may, how we love them so…
    I envy them for what they do, these are honorable men, most of them…

    I think I could probably live without the photos of the anti-war protesters erecting their little display of boots.

    Happy Memorial Day!

    So we are given a special day to ponder and remember……
    All the persons that have made the ultimate sacrifice, to offer their minds, bodies and souls to the protection of our great country…
    And how did you celebrate and memorialize the day?????
