Remembering Those Who Have Served
I will not attempt to write a post for today. My words would be feeble and unable to express the feeling of gratitude to all those who have served this country. I salute each and every one of you regardless where or when you served. May God bless each of you and may all those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice rest in His peace.
I add this quote which says more than I could ever say:
"We were young. We have died. Remember us. ... We have done what we could But until it is finished it is not done. ... We have given our lives But until it is finished no one can know what our lives gave. ... Our deaths are not ours, They are yours, They will mean what you make them. They say, Whether our lives, and our deaths were for peace and a new hope Or for nothing We cannot say. It is you who must say this. ... We leave you our deaths, Give them their meaning." --Archibald MacLeish, American poet, writer and the Librarian of Congress
