"If other eyes grow dull, other hands slack, and other hearts cold in the solemn trust, ours shall keep it well as long as the light and warmth of life remain to us."

Those words establishing Memorial Day are taken from General Order Number 11. That order was written in 1868 by General John Logan who was then serving as commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic.

Even as he encouraged people to remember those in the Civil War who had given their lives to preserve the Union, Logan recognized one of humanity's great flaws: we forget those to whom we owe much.

This memorial day, please...Please take a moment of your time to reflect on those men and women who served, suffered and died.

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast,
And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

All of my Brothers and Sisters are in my thoughts and prayers every day until the end of days. I also encourage others to reflect on those who have and are serving, alive and dead or somewhere between. Please also prey for perpetual peace so no more have to die.
