A Day To Remember Our Heroes in the U.S.

I believe…

I remember with respect and gratitude all the souls who served and lost their lives. They paid a steep price.

I remember that fighting is not a solution. It’s a last resort with an unbearable cost.

I remember that the brave didn’t start the wars…they finished them with their blood, sweat, tears and sometimes, their lives.

Thank you to all who served. And to those who died…

I remember.

    Beautiful. The truly wish that all of the human species could be as respectful.

    Thank you for sharing the photo with all of us and especially me. My father was in WWII and I was Active Duty from 1974 to 1996 and am a 70% disabled Vet.

    Perfect post. It really gets to me every time I think of those who have fallen for my right to an American.

    We must also be grateful for the families of the fallen. Their sacrifice is huge.

    Have a nice day.

    Carolyn, you must be very proud of your dad. My dad was a fighter pilot in WWII. They really were part of an amazing generation.

    THANK YOU for you long years of service. I’m very grateful. I’m also sorry you’re disabled. That’s a sacrifice I wish no one had to make and endure (that’s a whole other brand of courage to live with disability). I wish you the very best in tough circumstances.
