Memorial Day Tribute

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 (KJV)

flowers-14207_960_720 pixToday we honor those who gave their lives in sacrifice for our freedom. The legacy of those honored dead, who paid freedom’s price with their final breath; to secure, establish and defend the principles of liberty; set on fire a torch that burns brightly to this very day.

How shall we honor those who gave that last full measure of devotion, except that we are likewise devoted to the same great cause for which they gave that last measure. We must carry the torch set ablaze by their lives. We must live our lives worthy of their dying. We too must fight for the righteous cause of freedom.

Should we be faced with tyranny, standing toe to toe with the despots of our day; let us stand firm, never flinching in the facing. And, let us be resolved to enjoy the blessings of our freedom and to never sacrifice that freedom on the altar of peace-at-any-price.

How About You
Friend, if you have lost a loved one in the service of this great country, may I say on behalf of a grateful nation, thank you for your sacrifice.

God bless you and keep you… and God bless America.

  1. Beautiful memorial to the memory of those whom Memorial Day is set aside to remember. I have not lost anyone to war, but my heart goes out to all of the mothers and fathers, wives and children, brothers and sisters who have been bereaved because of it. I cannot begin to imagine what it must feel like.
    “Should we be faced with tyranny, standing toe to toe with the despots of our day; let us stand firm, never flinching in the facing. And let us be resolved to enjoy the blessings of our freedom and to never be willing to sacrifice that freedom on the altar of peace-at-any-price” This is so necessary for all to do so that we do not lose those freedoms so dearly fought for.
    God bless.
