Memorial Day


Recommended Posts

November of 1863, President Abraham Lincoln gave his historic Gettysburg Address and eloquently laid out the simple yet profound idea that lies at the heart of this day:

“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.”
