Crosses of Sacrifice and Courage Remind Us of The Heavy Cost of Liberty

Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. ”

  1. My wife pointed this out earlier this weekend. We owe so much to those who served and so much more to those who never returned from that service.

    • Yes, Dan. That is why I am deeply disappointed in the state of our country’s current attitude about everything from celebrity worship to mob scenes and rioting. We have poor examples serving in positions of power and leadership is NIL. Our good citizens have no voice where “We The People” issues go ignored by the people representing them, and the good citizens find their rights and freedoms threatened by the “great give-away’ being offered to people who have no real right to be here as they are law-breakers intending to come for whatever they can get without giving up anything in return…no intentions to serve this country as their new homeland in abiding laws, waiting in line for lawful approval to become real Americans, not intending to give up their native tongues or allegiance to be loyal to their homeland, and on and on. I cry when I think of the badly wounded service-people returning to their country to find that they cannot get timely treatment from the VA, no place to live, and no one willing to hire them…the world appears to have gone mad here as I see it…and I pray daily for our defenders and I thank God for those who made the ultimate sacrifice so selflessly — even if only for me to have that precious right to rant and disagree with the chaotic running of this country.
      It is offensive to endure endless sales ads and bbq events in the name of the almighty dollar or fun and parties signaling the start of summer.
      I’ll never understand why this day is treated so lightly or under-emphasized here in our country such as it is.
