On This Memorial Day

May 26, 2014

As we exercise our freedoms, without which we couldn’t enjoy the activities of this day, without which you couldn’t be you, let us take a moment to honor and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to attain and preserve our precious gift of freedom.  In cherishing their memory, we remember to cherish our freedom.

The fallen understood this:

“Liberty is one of the most precious gifts heaven has bestowed upon man. No treasures the earth contains or the sea conceals can be compared to it. For liberty one can rightfully risk one’s life”. —Don Quixote

“When you know what you are willing to die for, then you will know what to live for”. — Jewish saying

Certainly something to be grateful for

Heart and Soul

    I believe that FREEDOM is the most important basic right we all should have AND we should learn to get along and share and care for all. What I was taught about The Garden of Eden and about Paradise is that it was/is all of those ways of being and MORE ! If we say something nice everyday and do something nice everyday for people that we know and do not know, the chain reaction would reach around the world forever. We would not know negativity, only positivity! I believe it’s possible! Let’s give it a chance! Let’s give it a go! Go! GO !
    Thanks for reminding me of freedom and what it means to me

    Hi Fred, Thank you for these great thoughts and quotes. It is important for all Americans to be thankful we can walk our streets in safety because brave heroes fought to protect us. I am in Niagara on the Lake – Canadian side and lots of history here where the ‘Americans across the river’ fought for the land and won Fort Niagara way back in the 1800’s… .. ~Stefania
