By taking a moment to reflect on Memorial Day, we acknowledge the immeasurable debt of gratitude owed to fallen servicemen and women, ensuring that their legacies endure beyond the era of conflict in which they gave their lives for our nation.
Moreover, this day of reflection brings about a much deeper and more personal understanding of the cost of freedom and encourages a sense of unity and appreciation for the sacrifices made. It prompts Americans to come together, irrespective of personal backgrounds or political differences, to recognize the common thread that binds them as citizens and to express gratitude for the liberty we can thankfully enjoy.
