Monday Musings {5} - Memorial Day



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."
-Moina Michael

"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."
-Joseph Campbell

"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."
-Norman Schwarzkopf

"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."
-Lee Greenwood
