Some Memorial Day Thoughts.....

The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children. - William Havard

All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.- Winston Churchill

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. -William Pitt

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat - Theodore Roosevelt 


Just some things to think about today, this Memorial Day....
