Memorial Day – A National Day of Remembrance

Memorial Day, 2008, Lincoln Memorial

Memorial Day
Thoughts by Patrick Donovan, US Navy Disabled Veteran

Today is our solemn day of remembrance for our fallen heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our great experiment called the United States of America. The men and women buried in Arlington National Cemetery and all the men and women buried in the ground across this great nation deserve our gratitude and thanks for giving their lives in the defense of our freedom. Today, men and women across the planet are on a vigilant watch to keep our freedom and to ensure that we, as a nation, One Nation UNDER GOD, thrives and survives another day.
