Memorial Day

I’ve posted this picture before, but it really sums up what this day is about.  The price of freedom is high, and the memory of those who gave so much should always be honored.  No one can replace those lost, but we can honor them with our vigilance to defend with equal devotion this Republic we call home.  It isn’t our’s to give away.

  1. Pic says it all. How many thousands could have been snapped since 1776. And not ours to give away is right. No apology or bowing before Arabian kings or other world despots.

  2. Wonderful photo. Made me cry. Have not been commenting as I wanted you and your family to have the time you need. How are y’all doing? Keeping you in my prayers. God Bless, SR

    • Thank you! Revisiting a lot of memories, and feeling blessed to have had the time we had. My Mom told me before her death that you don’t get over it, you get on with it. She was right. The loss is there, but so is the love.

    This is the first time I have ever reblogged a post, but do to the content that needs to be shared and contemplated by every American, I feel my readers will appreciate it. I have seen this picture before, but “Cowboy” is right; it sums up what Memorial Day is all about. Many of us have turned Memorial Day into a second Veterans Day, and while our veterans, reserves, and active duty military deserve our thoughts, prayers, respect and admiration, Memorial Day is to honor those who have passed on, never to be seen in this life again. H/T to my California pardner. Indeed, this Republic is not ours to give away.
