>In honor of all the heroes who have fallen for our freedom, I offer these quotes:
For love of country they accepted death… ~James A. Garfield
The patriot’s blood is the seed of Freedom’s tree. ~Thomas Campbell
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. ~Joseph Campbell
Cover them over with beautiful flowers,
Deck them with garlands, those brothers of ours,
Lying so silent by night and by day
Sleeping the years of their manhood away.
Give them the meed they have won in the past;
Give them the honors their future forcast;
Give them the chaplets they won in the strife;
Give them the laurels they lost with their life.
We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them. ~Francis A. Walker
How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! ~Maya Angelou
Rest in peace.
