Memorial Day is not just a day for barbecuing and beach tripping…It is a day for remembering our lost soldiers…It is a day for praising our lost soldiers for their bravery to fight…and to die for America. As President Ronald Reagan once said, “I don’t have to tell you how fragile this precious gift of freedom is. Every time we hear, watch, or read the news, we are reminded that liberty is a rare commodity in this world.”
Now, without further ado, please enjoy this artistic photo story + quotes.
