Their Sacrifice, Our Duty

On Memorial day it is not only a time to remember their sacrifice, it is time to remember our duty.

These United States have never been perfect, we have been afflicted with Know-Nothings, Klansmen, Blaine Amendments, Grant's Black Friday, the Teapot Dome Scandal, Watergate, etc. We will never be perfect. However, the sacrifice of these young men and women calls us to the struggle. They have died, leaving us the duty to make our country a better place for those left behind.

They gave all - the question is whether we are honoring the sacrifice.

Thanks for the photo
