Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Guards at Freedom's Door

There are many stories that have sprang up over the years,
of how Memorial Day come to be...
But regardless of the story one chooses to believe,
Memorial Day is a day for remembering the price of Liberty.

Whether or not the first observation was southern or northern born
has nothing to do with the events of war that made
and keep Americans free.

Memorial Day is for coming together, as a freedom loving people,
to pay tribute to American soldiers from all generations,
who satisficed to insure the inalienable right of every man, woman ,
and child to inherit the torch of liberty.

Though the torch of liberty may grow dim from time to time...
The flame in every American's heart, ignited long ago...
burns brighter today than ever before, because of those whose blood,
sweat, tears, and prayers-continue to bring out the best in their offspring
who today stand guard at freedoms door.

God Bless America!
