Memorial Day Quotes

The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example. 
– Benjamin Disraeli

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast, And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.
– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
 

These heroes are dead.  They died for liberty – they died for us.  They are at rest.  They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines.  They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest.  Earth may run red with other wars – they are at peace.  In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death.  I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead:  cheers for the living; tears for the dead. 
– Robert G. Ingersoll

  2. We do not support our veterans enough. The government should do more for the men and women who fought for our freedom instead of taking away their benefits a little at a time. I am humbled by the fact that so many gave their lives so I may enjoy my freedom. Remember them and their sacrifice.
