“I don’t have to tell you how fragile 
this precious gift of freedom is. Every 
time we hear, watch, or read the news, 
we are reminded that liberty is a rare 
commodity in this world.” 
 President Ronald Reagan
Memorial day sayings 2016

I went to see the soldiers, row on row on row,
And wondered about each so still, their badges all on show.
What brought them here, what life before
Was like for each of them?
What made them angry, laugh, or cry,
These soldiers, boys and men.
Some so young, some older still, a bond more close than brothers
These men have earned and shared a love, that’s not like any others
They trained as one, they fought as one
They shared their last together
That bond endures, that love is true
And will be, now and ever.
I could not know, how could I guess, what choices each had made,
Of how they came to soldiering, what part each one had played?
But here they are and here they’ll stay,
Each one silent and in place,
Their headstones line up row on row
They guard this hallowed place.



Blow out, you bugles, over the rich Dead!

There’s none of these so lonely and poor of old,

But, dying, has made us rarer gifts than gold.

Memorial day sayings 2016~Rupert Brooke



And they who for their country 
die shall fill an honoured grave, 
for glory lights the soldier’s tomb, 
and beauty weeps the brave.
Memorial day sayings 
—Joseph Rodman Drake

Are they dead that yet speak louder than 
we can speak, and a more universal language? 
Are they dead that yet act? Are they dead that 
yet move upon society and inspire the people 
with nobler motives and more heroic patriotism? 
Happy Memorial day sayings~Henry Ward Beecher

For love of country they accepted death… ~James A. Garfield
They fell, but o’er their glorious grave
Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save.
Memorial day sayings 2016~Francis Marion Crawford


There are many flags in many lands,
There are flags of every hue;
But there is no flag, however grand,
Like our own Red, White, and Blue.
~Mary Howliston~

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast,
And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest. 
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

Green sods are all their monuments; and yet it tells
A nobler history than pillared piles,
Or the eternal pyramids.
