Monday is Memorial Day in the USA where those who served and sacrificed everything in the military are remembered and honored. A solemn and serious time of reflection and honor to those who are no longer with us because they died for their nation.
It is my hope that those who have served and sacrificed over the past few years have done so for all Americans. Freedom and liberty are two words used a lot in the USA and it doesn’t seem everyone has access to those ideals that many people hold fast to their heart and soul.
Yes, I am a liberal but I respect those who chose to wear the uniform of this nation. Not everyone can or will make that choice and its an individual decision. Also not everyone is suited for this type of service. For those who serve who are also a part of the LGBTQ community thank you for being on the wall, on the front lines and doing so even though many in this country hates you just for being who you were born to be.
Let’s remember those who gave all but strive to make that sacrifice worth it for everyone. It’s the American way isn’t it?
Memorial Day or Decoration Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. On this day remember the ultimate sacrifice many have made to serve others and to advance the right to life, liberty and happiness for everyone.
Today in the United States we remember those who have given their lives in the defense of this country. Many who have gone into battle did not come home. Giving ones life is the ultimate sacrifice. Those who wear the uniform of their country are to be respected and honored because they are going into harms way. Many families mourn those who died on the battlefield and may they be comforted. May their loved ones and friends be remembered on this and every day.
Memorial Day is to recognize those who died in the defense and service of our country. I say there were plenty who died physically and plenty who died spiritually and emotionally. Death isn’t just about the body perishing it’s about leaving a part of one’s soul on the field of battle. We must remember those who died in more than one way today. Those who returned from war must be comforted and cared for along with those they left behind. Even those who died in a different way need love, care and support.
Memorial Day is a time to honor fallen members of the military in the United States of America. This song by Billy Ray Cyrus just seems to capture the spirit and the somberness of the holiday very well. He tells a great story in this song. Some gave all, we must remember.
