Monday Mottoes – #192

memorial_dayIt’s Memorial Day in the U.S. and our thoughts reach beyond barbecues and the beach to those who served our country. They laid their lives on the line so that we might have freedom. So today, we honor those who gave their all. It was not in vain.

Which brings us to two quotes:

“America’s fighting men and women sacrifice much to ensure that our great nation stays free. We owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause, as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed.” ~Allen Boyd

Any talk of the military naturally brings up the issue of bearing arms, with an interesting insight from the early memdayAmerican patriot, Patrick Henry:

“Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?” ~Patrick Henry

Good food for thought. Happy Memorial Day, everyone!
