Monday - Memorial Day

For love of country they accepted death -  James A. Garfield

Ah! never shall the land forget - William Cullen Bryant

True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost - Arthur Ashe

  1. Hi Joanne - Arthur Ashe said it right ... we, today, need to be leaders and act - not be passive onlookers and enjoyers of the comfort of life we have today ... at their cost ...

    A peaceful Memorial to you and each and everyone of us ... Hilary

  5. Brilliant quotes all, but the third really nails it. We need more of those undramatic true heroes.
