Lincoln understood"But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate - we can not consecrate - we can not hallow - this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
- Abraham Lincoln (excerpt from the Gettysburg Address, November 19th, 1863)
I know that I need them, probably more than I want to admit. Please let Memorial Day affect you. I understand that it has affected every single one of us. It should.
"No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends." (John 15:13)
Thank you for all those who have sacrificed, have paid such a dear price, for freedom. Let us spend our lives wisely.
