Heroism is latent in every human soul. However humble or unknown, they (the veterans) have renounced what are accounted pleasures and cheerfully undertaken all self-denials; privations, toils, dangers, sufferings, sicknesses, mutilations, life-long hurts and losses, death itself? For some great good, dimly seen but dearly held.
~ Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain
Before you fire up the grill today or head out to your favorite picnic spot, take a moment to remember those who have sacrificed for our freedom to do so. I hope everyone has a lovely, relaxing Memorial Day!
