Memorial Day 2012

Just a few memorial day quotes I found that I wanted to share on this special day.  Let us not forget what Memorial day is truly about; and while we enjoy an extra day with our families and friends, let us say thanks to the fallen and currently active soldiers protecting our freedom and rights as Americans.

Memorial Day 2012 in Washington, DCChance has never yet satisfied the hope of a suffering people. Action, self-reliance, the vision of self and the future have been the only means by which the oppressed have seen and realized the light of their own freedom. -Marcus Garvey

So long as there are men there will be wars. -Albert Einstein

The cost of liberty is less than the cost of repression. -Web Dubois

Memorial Day Pictures Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. -John F. Kennedy

Future years will never know the seething hell and the black infernal background, the countless minor scenes and interiors of the secession war; and it is best they should not. The real war will never get in the books. -Walt Whitman

As I approach the gates of heaven;
St. Peter I will tell;
One more soldier reporting sir;
I've served my time in hell. -Mark Anthony Gresswell

Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace. -Martin Luther

~Trina & Leah
