Honoring Sacrifice

This image moves me deeply. It speaks to me of the sacrifices that soldiers and their loved ones make for us every day. On this Memorial Weekend I thought that it might be good to share a few thoughts about sacrifice from three men who died in the service of our country.

My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. - John F. Kennedy

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

We never should, and I am sure, never shall be niggard of gratitude and benefaction to the soldiers who have endured toil, privations and wounds, that the nation may live. -Abraham Lincoln

    1. I especially liked the Lincoln quote. Michelle. I had not heard it before.

  3. Thank you for sharing the photo and the quotes. I hadn't heard Lincoln's before either.
    We must never forget and be thankful for what their lost lives have given us.
    I am forever grateful.
