This is the first time I have ever reblogged a post, but do to the content that needs to be shared and contemplated by every American, I feel my readers will appreciate it. I have seen this picture before, but “Cowboy” is right; it sums up what Memorial Day is all about. Many of us have turned Memorial Day into a second Veterans Day, and while our veterans, reserves, and active duty military deserve our thoughts, prayers, respect and admiration, Memorial Day is to honor those who have passed on, never to be seen in this life again. H/T to my California pardner. Indeed, this Republic is not ours to give away.
I’ve posted this picture before, but it really sums up what this day is about. The price of freedom is high, and the memory of those who gave so much should always be honored. No one can replace those lost, but we can honor them with our vigilance to defend with equal devotion this Republic we call home. It isn’t our’s to give away.
