Barack Obama: "On Memorial Day we come together as Americans to let these families and veterans know that they are not alone. We give thanks for those who sacrificed everything so that we could be free. And we commit ourselves to upholding the ideals for which so many patriots have fought and died."

2. John F. Kennedy: "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

3. Robin Hayes: "Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life."

4. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: "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."

5. Martin Luther: "Peace is more important than all justice; and peace was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace."

6. John Lennon: "When we say 'War is over if you want it,' we mean that if everyone demanded peace instead of another TV set, we'd have peace."

7. Socrates: "The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be."

8. Ronald Reagan: "If we love our country, we should also love our countrymen."

9. George Washington: "Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism."

10. George William Curtis: "A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers and woods, it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle."

11. Artistotle: "You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor."

12. John F. Kennedy: "Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."

13. Christopher Reeve: "A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strenght to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."

14. Winston Churchill: "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."

15. Benjamin Franklin: "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

But fame is theirs - and future days
On pillar'd brass shall tell their praise;
Shall tell - when cold neglect is dead -
"These for their country fought and bled."
~Philip Freneau


Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations, that we have forgotten, as a people, the cost of a free and undivided Republic.  ~John A. Logan


Your silent tents of green
We deck with fragrant flowers;
Yours has the suffering been,
The memory shall be ours.

The story of America's quest for freedom is inscribed on her history in the blood of her patriots.  ~Randy Vader


Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson


Alas, how can we help but mourn
When hero bosoms yield their breath!
A century itself may bear
But once the flower of such a death.
~S. Weir Mitchell


They hover as a cloud of witnesses above this Nation.  ~Henry Ward Beecher


These martyrs of patriotism gave their lives for an idea.  ~Schuyler Colfax


They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.
~Philip Freneau


For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.  ~William Penn


Ah! never shall the land forget
How gushed the life-blood of her brave -

Hero fit for song and story.

Of justice absolute 'twixt man and man.

Roll the drum and fire the volley!

But ah the blood that keeps its ripples red,
The starry lives that keep its field alight.

The dead still play their part.

We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.  ~Francis A. Walker

In Flanders fields the cannon boom
And fitful flashes light the gloom,
      While up above, like eagles, fly
      The fierce destroyers of the sky;
      With stains, the earth wherein you lie
Is redder than the poppy bloom,
            In Flanders fields. //
Sleep on, ye brave. The shrieking shell,
The quaking trench, the startled yell,
The fury of the battle hell
Shall wake you not; for all is well.
Sleep peacefully; for all is well. //
Your flaming torch aloft we bear,
With burning heart an oath we swear
      To keep the faith, to fight it through,
      To crush the foe or sleep with you
            In Flanders fields.

When is memorial day this year :-


The patriot's blood is the seed of Freedom's tree.  ~Thomas Campbell


Decoration Day is the most beautiful of our national holidays.... 
The grim cannon have turned into palm branches, and the shell and shrapnel 
into peach blossoms.  ~Thomas Bailey Aldrich


Better than honor and glory, and History's iron pen,
Was the thought of duty done and the love of his fellow-men.
~Richard Watson Gilder


We who are left how shall we look again
Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?
~Wilfred Wilson Gibson


A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.  
~Joseph Campbell


Who kept the faith and fought the fight;
The glory theirs, the duty ours.
~Wallace Bruce


I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; 
I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on
Decoration Day.  I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, 
because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where 
their valor placed it.  We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant 
commemoration of what they did.  ~Benjamin Harrison


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.
~Will Carleton


Life hangs as nothing in the scale against dear Liberty!  ~Lucy Larcom


All we have of freedom, all we use or know -
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.
~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899


Our battle-fields, safe in the keeping
Of Nature's kind, fostering care,
Are blooming, - our heroes are sleeping, -
And peace broods perennial there.
~John H. Jewett


These heroes are dead.  They died for liberty - they died for us.  
They are at rest.  They sleep in the land they made free, under the 
flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, 
the tearful willows, and the embracing vines.  They sleep beneath the 
shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in 
the windowless Place of Rest.  Earth may run red with other wars - they 
are at peace.  In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found 
the serenity of death.  I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead:  
cheers for the living; tears for the dead.  ~Robert G. Ingersoll


Their silent wounds have speech
More eloquent than men;
Their tones can deeper reach
Than human voice or pen.
~William Woodman


Their own souls rose and cried
Alarum when they heard the sudden wail
Of stricken freedom and along the gale
Saw her eternal banner quivering wide.
~John LeGay Brereton


The dead soldier's silence sings our national anthem.  ~Aaron Kilbourn


Our cheer goes back to them, the valiant dead!
Laurels and roses on their graves to-day,
Lilies and laurels over them we lay,
And violets o'er each unforgotten head.

~Richard Hovey

Memorial Day Fireworks :-






On thy grave the rain shall fall from the eyes of a mighty nation! ~Thomas William Parsons




Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored. ~Daniel Webster




With the tears a Land hath shed
Their graves should ever be green.
~Thomas Bailey Aldrich




Are they dead that yet speak louder than we can speak, and a more universal language? Are they dead that yet act? Are they dead that yet move upon society and inspire the people with nobler motives and more heroic patriotism? ~Henry Ward Beecher




Green sods are all their monuments; and yet it tells
A nobler history than pillared piles,
Or the eternal pyramids.
~James Gates Percival




Is't death to fall for Freedom's right?
He's dead alone who lacks her light!
~Thomas Campbell




For love of country they accepted death... ~James A. Garfield




They fell, but o'er their glorious grave
Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save.
~Francis Marion Crawford




Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. ~From a headstone in Ireland




Blow out, you bugles, over the rich Dead!
There's none of these so lonely and poor of old,
But, dying, has made us rarer gifts than gold.
~Rupert Brooke




The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men.
~Minot J. Savage




The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example. ~Benjamin Disraeli




And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
~Lee Greenwood




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




Peace to each manly soul that sleepeth;
Rest to each faithful eye that weepeth...
~Thomas Moore




But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for,
Is their monument to-day, and for aye.
~Thomas Dunn English




And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, for glory lights the soldier's tomb, and beauty weeps the brave. ~Joseph Drake




Go ye to the graves and decorate,
Place flags for boys who have died;
Kneel down and say prayers for your loved ones,
But know they're still by your side!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "Memorial Day—1945"




Perform, then, this one act of remembrance before this Day passes - Remember there is an army of defense and advance that never dies and never surrenders, but is increasingly recruited from the eternal sources of the American spirit and from the generations of American youth. ~W.J. Cameron




How sleep the brave, who sink to rest,
By all their country's wishes blest!
When Spring, with dewy fingers cold,
Returns to deck their hallow'd mould,
She there shall dress a sweeter sod
Than Fancy's feet have ever trod.
By fairy hands their knell is rung,
There Honour comes, a pilgrim gray,
To bless the turf that wraps their clay;
And Freedom shall awhile repair,
To dwell, a weeping hermit, there.
~William Collins

Memorial Day Facts :-

The true origins of who held the first Memorial Day celebration is a debated subject.
Approximately 620,000 soldiers on both sides died during the Civil War.
The Grand Army of the Republic was created by the Union Army to honor their dead. After World War I the American Legion took over their duties.
Congress passed a law in 2000 that requires all Americans to stop what they are doing at 3pm on Memorial Day to remember and to honor those who have died serving the United States. President Clinton signed this action.
The flag is supposed to be flown at half-mast until noon, and then raised to full mast until sunset on Memorial Day.
The tradition of wearing red poppies on Memorial Day originated from John McCrae's 1915 poem In Flanders Fields. In Canada they wear red poppies to honor their soldiers on Remembrance Day in November each year.
Although not as popular today, one tradition was to eat a picnic meal while sitting on the ground of a cemetery. There are still some people in the rural areas of the South that continue to practice this tradition.
It's common for volunteers to place the American flag on graves in the national cemeteries. Memorial Day is also a popular day for people to visit cemeteries and honor those who have died while serving in the military.
It's estimated that approximately 32 million people travel by car over Memorial Day weekend.
Memorial Day also marks the beginning of the summer vacation season while Labor Day marks the end.
In some areas of the rural South, they hold annual Decoration Days around this time for certain cemeteries, often in the mountains.
Memorial Day is sometimes confused with Veterans Day. However, Veterans Day honors all United States military veterans, while Memorial Day honors the soldiers who died while serving.
In 1966, President Johnson named Waterloo, New York as the original place of Memorial Day.
There were more American lives lost during the Civil War then the two World Wars combined. Approximately 620,000 died during the Civil War while approximately 116,516 died in World War I and approximately 405,399 died in World War II.
There are more than 300,000 fallen soldiers buried at Arlington Cemetery. On average, there are 28 burials there each day.
Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia celebrate Confederate Memorial Day. These are former Confederate states, and they celebrate on various other days ranging from January 19th to June 3rd.
In 2012 there was a movie made called Memorial Day. John and James Cromwell and Jonathan Bennett starred in the film. The story revolves around a 13 year old boy who finds his grandpa's footlocker from the 2nd World War.
Celebrated on the last Monday in May.
Several towns claim to be the originators of Memorial Day but in 1966, Congress declared Waterloo, New York, to be the birthplace of the holiday.
Memorial Day originally honored military personnel who died in the Civil War (1861-1865).
The holiday now honors those who died in any war while serving with the United States.
It is also called Decoration Day.
Timeline:
May 5, 1866 - 
Residents of Waterloo, New York, observe a Memorial Day in honor of all who died during the Civil War. Businesses are closed and soldiers' graves are decorated.
1868 - General John Alexander Logan officially proclaims May 30, 1868 as Memorial Day in honor of the Union soldiers who died in the Civil War. Until after World War I, southern states celebrate a separate Memorial Day in honor of the Confederate dead.
1971 Congress declares Memorial Day a national holiday to be celebrated the last Monday in May.
December 28, 2000 - President Bill Clinton signs the "National Moment of Remembrance Act," which designates 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day each year as the National Moment of Remembrance.
U.S. War Casualties:
Civil War -

Memorial Day Poems :-



Military Tunic~Homeless Poet~ A lost guardian angel. Sitting on the edge of the world. I follow the cracks of the sidewalk, my trolley and I. My home on the corner of every mission street. My tin coffee cup starts off with caring heartbeats. My only possession is the icon of war, with six buttons missing. Navy and white my grandfathers 70-year-old military tunic. My Jacket- My blanket- My Jacket from which I am inseparable. My Jacket goes wherever I go. This Jacket is my home. ~A Home~:contest 

 Memorial Day Poem 
Eyes of BlueA people persecuted beyond imagination; To help them he felt, was his obligation. He joined the army in World War II; Not knowing his hell would be Eyes of Blue. When he reached Normandy, the beaches were red. Crawling over his brothers who lay already dead. To give this tyrant, this devil his due; Not knowing his own demons, would be Eyes of Blue. He rounded a building securing a town; A young German soldier was just coming round. He plunged his bayonet, the quicker of the two; Killing the young soldier, with Eyes of Blue. He knelt down beside him with tears in his eyes; How long this moment would last, he did not realize. He closed the eyes as he thought he should do; Thinking never again to see those Eyes of Blue. The victor over many in Germany and Japan; It was always difficult taking life from a man. None would haunt him, this he now knew; As long as the soldier, with Eyes of Blue. He died an old man, to heaven he went; For this honorable soldier, mercy was sent. First time since the war, so sad but true; A peaceful sleep, not seeing Eyes of Blue. 


A Service Member's PrayerA Service Member's Prayer Oh, God, I feel that I have cause To know my life might give You pause, But fair as You are sure to be, I seek Your way on bended knee. I wish neither to kill nor die, Though from engagement I'll not shy. For if my duty calls me there, I'll do whatever I must dare. I seek not courage for the fight. I seek not comfort from the night. I ask not pardon for my deeds, Nor any salve for any needs. I only ask to know what's right, To do my best to check my might, To render mercy where I should, To know I serve the greater good. Oh, God, if You will hear my plea, I ask so very much of thee. I fear not men, I fear not death, Yet bow my head and still my breath To ask You, please, to do Your best, To keep me from eternal rest, Until the hour my duty sends Me home to family and friends. And if You grant my humble prayer, Oh, God, I ask You, keep from care Those people whom I hold most dear. I wish them not to shed a tear In anguish over days now done, Where my dawn was their setting sun. For then, if You will grant my plea, I'll soon be nearer them and Thee. Copyright Shawn H. Hall 2014


LIGHTS OUTLights Out One hundred years on and still the shout “Everyone put your lights out” Just for an hour from 10 to 11 And remember all those souls in heaven One hundred years and still the cry The perennial unanswered question “why?” Is there a need in this hour of deed For any to ignore or not to heed? One hundred years, millions dead In battles, wars and streets of dread Trenches then, now car bombs blast Tearing at families left aghast One hundred years – again LIGHTS OUT Not one city but the country throughout Is this too much to ask ourselves For those who died through bayonet and shells? Lights out and let us honour our dead Light a single candle in room or shed Remember those terse words upon us yet “Lest we Forget – lest we forget!” 






Unforgettable MomentThose were my green and salad days My friends, my toys were all my wealth. Marbles and pebbles, my gems and pearls. No fear of loss or bother about gains. Trump cards valued no less than money. School , home and uncle’s was my world. What comes from where and goes where None of them, I cared about, alike prince. To run the empire of my utopia, my dad Fought so many battles against all odds. Unaware of all, with joy pass my days. Till one day to pay my fees, I remember If anything seeped into my mind ever Like an engraved word on copper plate. He has to sell his wedding watch On the pulse, for the first moment in life. My eyes were wet for someone else Other than me, painted with the colours Of emotion, as most memorable picture. For a poetry contest,inspired from a real memory. ©15/09/2014


The Day the Earth MovedThe moment that changed a city The moment that changed a town The moment that the earth did move The moment that walls came down. Sudden shock in the dark of night Not expected before a coming day Jolted from a peaceful sleep From a nasty brutal sway. What seemed to be eternity Seconds that weren't so quick Suddenly silence spread its sound Except the echo of an old clocks tick. Fears for friends and family The networks all gone down Checking neighbours in the street Emotions shaky as the ground. Listening to the radio Expecting death to fill the air Bracing with every aftershock Terror laid fully bare. Angels must have worked that night No one badly harmed Not knowing in the future We weren’t to be so charmed. 4th September 2015 Christchurch Earthquake September 4th 2010. The smaller earthquake on February 22nd 2011 was to claim 185 lives. 


DEAD AT HOME ON VETERN'S DAYDEAD AT HOME ON VETREN'S DAY It's a gray day, in the café, by the side of the road. There's an old man, took a firm stand, trying to loosen the load. It is struck luck, with his last buck, but he pays for his soup. He has no wife, all of his life, he is out of the loop. He will bum thumb, in a ride from, here to his cardboard box. There's a sleeping roll, a piece of coal, and a pillow made of rocks. Allegory. No glory. A mad sad told cold story. Alliteration, of an allegation, on how he kills for glory. Then the lie dies, in GI's, when our soldier kills a man. All told, he is not bold, but this tale is secondhand. He preaches whale's tales, of army mad males, as he calls for his god. Then he dreams schemes, of the war machines, and ghosts that run him odd. Then he weeps sleeps, and a secret keeps, and he hates the morning light. He has lost his place, in the human race, and he always will take flight. He will dine fine, on the red wine, which he drinks from a paper cup. He will watch stars, and count his scars, but his heart has given up! Allegory. No glory. A mad sad told cold story. Alliteration, of an allegation, on how he kills for glory. Then the lie dies, in GI's, when our soldier kills a man. All told, he is not bold, but this tale is secondhand. -Edlynn Nau



Last Endowmenttwilight’s last gleaming endowment is returned at the dawn’s early light

Solomon Mahlangu: My Blood will Nourish the Tree that will Bear the Fruits of Freedom(special thanks to a friend who shared this tribute to Solomon Mahlangu) Solomon Mahlangu: My Blood will Nourish the Tree that will Bear the Fruits of Freedom: Solomon Mahlangu was trained as an MK soldier with a view to later rejoining the struggle in the country. He left South Africa after the Soweto Uprising of 1976 when he was 19 years old, and was later chosen to be part of an elite force to return to South Africa to carry out a mission commemorating the June 16th 1976 Soweto student uprising. After entering South Africa through Swaziland and meeting his fellow comrades in Duduza, on the East Rand (east of Johannesburg), they were accosted by the police in Goch Street in Johannesburg. In the ensuing gun battle two civilians were killed and two were injured, and Mahlangu and Motloung were captured while acting as decoys so that the other comrade could go and report to the MK leadership. Motloung was brutally assaulted by the police to a point that he suffered brain damage and was unfit to stand trial, resulting in Mahlangu facing trial alone. He was charged with two counts of murder and several charges under the Terrorism Act, to which he pleaded not guilty. Though the judge accepted that Motloung was responsible for the killings, common purpose was argued and Mahlangu was found guilty on two counts of murder and other charges under the Terrorism Act. On 15 June 1978 Solomon Mahlangu was refused leave to appeal his sentence by the Rand Supreme Court, and on 24 July 1978 he was refused again in the Bloemfontein Appeal Court. Although various governments, the United Nations, International Organizations, groups and prominent individuals attempted to intercede on his behalf, Mahlangu awaited his execution in Pretoria Central Prison, and was hanged on 6 April 1979. His hanging provoked international protest and condemnation of South Africa and Apartheid. In fear of crowd reaction at the funeral the police decided to bury Mahlangu in Atteridgeville in Pretoria. On 6 April 1993 he was re-interred at the Mamelodi Cemetery, where a plaque states his last words: ‘My blood will nourish the tree that will bear the fruits of freedom. Tell my people that I love them. They must continue the fight.’ Mahlangu died for a cause! Salute! The Struggle Continues… (special thanks to a friend who shared this tribute to Solomon Mahlangu)

Fake WordsFake Words – Zamreen Zarook God have given us mouth, Not to speak to north and south, Tongue is given under an oath, So it’s our duty to protect them both. Girls chat fake with boys, Having a notion that the boys are toys, They often make varied noise, Thinking to keep a trap on handsome guys. Boys are also human being, So it’s not possible being clean, Things varies in the way they are seen, So positive thinking will make you keen. Boys’ minds are pure, As it is pure bio, So don’t try to pour vino, Which will take decades to get cure. 


The Night OwlHoot! Hoot! Came the call In silence I listened,heard Nothing. Suddenly, hoot! Hoot! Came the cry,tree Branches rustling,wings Flapping. Seems the world was in Oblivion-the absolute Silence. Went I to the window and Looked into the empty Darkness. As I lay down,I Knew somewhere I would Hear that sound again.

The Men Who Died Too Soon--Memorial Day TributeThe flag flies over this land of the brave and the free as a symbol of the liberty enjoyed by you and me. It flutters in the breeze of a quiet afternoon reflecting sounds of battles in which men died too soon. The flag flies overhead in cities and in towns where people seek a haven from worlds turned upside-down. It tries, gallantly, to honor, on quiet afternoons, memories of warriors -- young men who died too soon. The flag flies overhead -- unseen, by some, it seems, who hurry on their separate ways in search of private dreams. It waves farewell then, it appears, with the rise of the evening moon, it gently reaches out to touch the men who died too soon. Author's note: This was written some years ago to honor our fallen warriors May they rest in eternal peace.. Jake 

Memorial Daythe crowds are coming Memorial Day again when summer begins 

Remember Me Memorial Day Tribute 2015Remember Me Memorial Day Tribute 2015 A soldier gives his life in battle his spirit is set free. His body finds a grave his soul cries remember me. Remembering this moment that I first met my doom. Remember me, a baby forming in my mothers womb. Remembering first steps I took remember times I fell. Recall my dreams of heaven and each moment spent in hell. Remember mountains that I faced before I answered duty's call. Climbing trees and skinned up knees I dreamed I'd climb them all. Remember times of courage lessons learned and lessons taught. Remember me for good times before my last fight was fought. Remembering your freedom and that freedom don't come free. I ask so little in return when asking you remember me. Not a body in a grave somewhere, a wooden cross stuck in the dirt. A sister or a brother too with U.S.A. stitched on my shirt. Remember so it's not in vain the life that now is through. Remembering the blood that spilled still runs red white and blue. Edwin C Hofert

Soldier of AgesDedicated to Lt. Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. (November 11, 1885 – December 21, 1945) I'd fought a hundred battles through the ages past and new I'd been a lowly foot soldier But at times commanded too. I was a witness of Arab mothers Fleeing cities under-siege ; A new age liberator, The commander of the third. I had served with Ceasar's legion; The Carthaginians; and the Greeks. When Arthur was in his Kingship, I was a captain of the knights A horseman tough and skillful Of medieval cavalier; But ages had transformed me to dash with iron wheels The only time I meet MacArthur Was in the salient of St. Mehiel We both stood erect, calm, and unmindful To the guns and bursting shell. Oh well take a look at Monty Too slow for his advance He didn't expect me to take Palermo or Mesina to my plan I was reproved of my harshness, They knew not that I was somber too I cared not of my language As long as my point would get through I'd mixed my words with profanities That my orders surely stick My men would always remember every word While they're in the battle field Oh my, I hate those yellow bastards They have no place on this earth I sent them to the frontlines That no more they would breed Those swivel chair commanders Discounted my two days time But brave soldier deserved to be rescued Before his dog tag stops to chime. So my men made it to Dunkirk To the delight of McAuliffe "Surrender!" yelled the Nazis but "nutz" was all he said. I was cut off of supplies and fuel For Market Garden's sake But after pissing the flowing River I held the Fuhrer's nest So soon another war was ended Mine enemies had lost The iron carver claimed the glory And relieved me from my post.
