On Memorial Day weekend, let us think about the soldiers and families who have sacrificed their lives and loved ones, and given their time and dedication to our country.
This is an excerpt from Janine Turner’s essay from Constituting America:
No matter which war, they all fought the enemy, and….the enemy knew that he would not prevail against men and women who had the Divine right of liberty in their soul, passion in their hearts and the supreme strength of military readiness.
Memorial Day is the day to set aside time and sit down with our children and teach them about our wars and war heroes. It is a time to teach them about the Revolutionary War and the reasons why we fought it. They should know about the soldiers who walked barefoot in the snow, leaving the stain of their blood on the ice and about those soldiers who died miserable deaths as POWs in the stifling bowels of the British ships at sea. They should know about heroes such as Paul Revere, Israel Putnam and Nathan Hale who said, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”
A strong and honest government based on the Constitution and ruled by the people through the Constitutional Republic will prevail but only if we, as citizens, know about it and only if our children are raised on the fruits of this knowledge.
May God bless all of our service men and women past, present and future, who have fought valiantly for these principles*.
