Article 1 (May 2022): Memorial Day: We remember their sacrifice
May 27, 2022The tradition of honoring our country's fallen defenders began as a springtime custom following the Civil War. Originally called Decoration Day, it was a time to remember those fallen heroes.
To the list of those who died at Gettysburg and Bull Run, we have added names from San Juan Hill, Verdun, Corregidor, Inchon, Khe Sanh, Jalibah, the deserts and mountains of the Middle East and a thousand other places touched by war.
For most of the year, these souls lie in quiet repose, but on Memorial Day, we visit them again with our thanks for their great sacrifice.
It is not really a time for sadness. Rather, it should be an affirmation that these men and women did not lose their lives in vain.
This special day is a time to pay tribute to those who fell and to a country that plunged onward in pursuit of justice and democracy. We mourn our dead, but we rejoice in their memory and in the democracy they defended.
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
. . . and if words cannot repay the debt we owe these men, surely with our actions we must strive to keep faith with them and with the vision that led them to battle and to final sacrifice.
Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.
And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier's tomb, and beauty weeps the brave.
Joseph Rodman Drake
