Between the crosses, row on row,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
To you from failing hands we throw
-LtCol John McCrae, In Flanders Fields
We have come to the final Monday in May, and with that comes the recognition of Memorial Day. Today is the day that we, as Americans, remember the sacrifices of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country of ours. . .that allow us to be who we are, to do what we do, and to be what we desire to be. As you go about your day today, be sure to take a moment to remember them.
Also, to the families that are remembering a loved one today, know that our hearts are with you. We know that mere words can't possibly fill the void or abate the sadness that you are feeling today. However, as long as there is an America for us to call home, the deeds and sacrifices of your loved ones will never be forgotten.
