Happy Memorial Day

 

Today’s Memorial Day here in the United States. Memorial Day, which started after the Civil War in 1868, was created to honor all Americans who died fighting for our country. It’s often confused with Veterans Day, which is an observance for those who served in the U.S. military.

In honor of the brave men and women that died for our freedom I have listed twenty of my favorite quotes:

  • “Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.” – Mark Twain
  • “The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.” – John F. Kennedy
  • “Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.” – Pete Hegseth
  • “137 years later, Memorial Day remains one of America’s most cherished patriotic observances. The spirit of this day has not changed – it remains a day to honor those who died defending our freedom and democracy.” – Doc Hastings
  • “Better to die fighting for freedom than be a prisoner all the days of your life.” – Bob Marley
  • “There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured with what is right in America.” – William J. Clinton
  • “They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast, And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 
  • “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
  • “The patriot’s blood is the seed of Freedom’s tree.” – Thomas Campbell
  • “I have long believed that sacrifice is the pinnacle of patriotism.” – Bob Riley
  • “There is nothing wrong with America that the faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of her citizens can not cure.” – Dwight David Eisenhower
  • “The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men.” – Minot J. Savage
  • “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell
  • “For love of country they accepted death.” – James Garfield
  • “The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children.” – William Harvard
  • “They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast, And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
  • “True patriotism isn’t cheap. It’s about taking on a fair share of the burden of keeping America going.” – Robert Reich
  • “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell
  • “And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier’s tomb, and beauty weeps the brave.” – Joseph Drake
  • “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

Freedom is never free. Thank you for your service and ultimate sacrifice to our country.
