On this Memorial Day, live the life the fallen cannot. Remind yourself amid the beer and BBQ that there is a price for the quality of life you lead, one only paid in blood, and one that cannot be understood by those who’ve never been there.
Don’t give anyone your thanks. Just reverence.

They gave all their tomorrows so that we might have our today.
Honor them. Make each day truly count!
Those who answered the call and laid down their lives have won an invisible battle, in addition to the visible one.Our society’s preservation depends upon us remembering, and honoring, and ultimately emulating them – for they emulated Him in their sacrifice, abiding in His call that we should each stand firm to the end.
“Greater love than this no man hath, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
And to those who abide with Him to then end, the outcome is also certain, “His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Matt 25:23)
In every battle, there is the visible and the invisible conflict. Win the inner conflict first, and your outcome is certain. The rest is just logistics.
Yes, their check was cashed. Memorial Day honors them and the dear price they paid. However, we can remember them anyday, and everyday… friends, family and comrades in arms. May they rest in peace always!
