Remember....Memorial Day 2005


Today is a day we honor the fallen heros.
A day to remember the soldiers who gave their all,
so that we might be free.

Our freedom does not come free, nor should it be taken for granted.

"...from these honored dead, we take increased devotion to that cause forwhich they here gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we herehighly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain..."
~Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address~

There is a nationwide effort called the
"National Moment of Remembrance".
Today at 3:00 pm they are asking all Americans
to pause for one minute in silent tribute
to those who have given their lives
in the service of their country.
