For Memorial Day

“No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.”

— St. Ambrose

It can be difficult to know how to observe Memorial Day, especially in these times when people are so divided and there are so many voice out there saying that there are no more heroes.  For me, though, these two vintage images sum up what Memorial Day is about.  It’s not day for celebrating war.  It’s a day for honoring those who lost their lives fighting for this country and it’s a day to hope for peace.  It’s a day to give thanks and to pledge that their sacrifice will not have been in vain.
