On Memorial Day weekend I would like to share a quote from President Ronald Reagan that drives home the true sacrifice made by our soldiers killed in war…
“It is, in a way, an odd thing to honor those who died in defense of our country, in defense of us, in wars far away. The imagination plays a trick. We see these soldiers in our mind as old and wise. We see them as something like the Founding Fathers, grave and gray-haired. But most of them were boys when they died, and they gave up two lives — the one they were living and the one they would have lived. When they died, they gave up their chance to be husbands and fathers and grandfathers. They gave up their chance to be revered old men. They gave up everything for our country, for us… And all we can do is remember them.”
It never fails… I get chills every time I read it. Funny enough, this quote was from a 1985 Veterans Day speech. But this portion feels appropriate today.
