Memorial Day 2020
On this Memorial Day we pay our respects to those who gave their lives so we could live ours. We remember generations past that preserved and protected this union and the courage that beat through the hearts of early patriots that died to secure a democracy they would never experience. We acknowledge that this same selflessness continues today, demonstrated in the men and women who give the ultimate sacrifice to hold our nation and its precious freedoms together. For the parents who lose a child, the husbands and wives who lose a spouse, and the children who lose parents, we recognize that every loss is devastating. That's why on this day we hold these families close, offer our support, and express our profound gratitude. We remember their service and we proudly declare that their sacrifice will never be forgotten. On this Memorial Day let us cherish the strength, resolve and love that our fallen displayed, and let us live our lives to be worthy of the highest values and sacrifices made in our name.
