Memorial Day

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Sunday, May 29, 2011

Tomorrow is Memorial Day.

It’s a day we seat aside to remind ourselves to honor the sacrifice of life that our nation’s military service members made in service to our nation.

Whether we agree – or not – with the policies or justification for sending our uniformed service members into harm’s way where they later died, we must remember that they were willingly and voluntarily obedient – whether they griped or complained is not the issue – they did not abandon their orders, and were faithful unto death.

They did not turn their backs and run from their fellow service member.

There is something to be said for obedience.

Thank you.

God Bless You, and your memories, every one.

May our nation – indeed, every nation – never forget the tragedies of war, yet always  honor their slain heroes.

Rest In Peace
