So today is Memorial Day, a day for the United States of America to honor all men&women who died while serving the military. The history of Memorial Day dates back to the late 1860s after the Civil War. Those who risked it all and died for this great country, most certainly deserve all of our thanks and gratitude. We can never honor those who gave their lives in the line of duty enough, but we can try.
Why is this the case, why do we honor those who have fallen so? Why do we need to? Because we just do, those men and women who have laid down their lives for us and this great country gave their all. Every man and woman who ever died while in the service of the United States Military, did so for something greater than themselves.
That mentality to not only recognize that there is something bigger than oneself but to make the decision that, that something is worth diving for is unfortunately a rare commodity, and as such that kind of mentality deserves more than any other to be respected, honored, and remembered. Actually it requires much more, it requires that we put up those with that mentality upon a pedestal so that their sacrifice is never for gotten. Not just their sacrifice, but what they sacrificed for and why they did so.
We honor and remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and died because it is not only the right thing to do and because it is the least we can do, but because these heroes inspire us. They inspire us to stand up for what is right in the world and what we believe in. We also want future generations to remember them and their sacrifices and also be inspired by them.
So that is why we honor our men and women in military service that died for this country and why we have to do so. In the end we really have no choice but to honor them. They gave so much for us, they gave it all, that the very least that we could do is give them the honor that that have earned and deserve. So honor and remember the men and women of our arm services who have died for us.
