A day of Remembrance

Memorial Day,
a day set aside as remembrance
of the vigor, 
and the courage, 
and the dedication 
honoring . . . 

A tribute 
to all of America's war dead,
a day to preserve the memories 
of those that have forged ahead 
for our freedoms 
and paid the ultimate price 
. . . with their lives


Peace to each manly soul that sleepeth;
Rest to each faithful eye that weepeth.

- Thomas Moore

 The brave never die, though they sleep in dust;
Their courage nerves a thousand living men.

- Minot J. Savage
