In honor of Memorial Day:
"They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast,
And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies."
"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."
"It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle."
"And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me."
