Memorial Day Tribute (Continued..)

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


Memorial Day Cake 

Baked by Scrumptious Consumptions


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

In valor there is hope.”

The truth is, we live in deeds, not days; in actions and thoughts and feelings, not heartbeats. If the untimely battlefield deaths of generations of American heroes have taught us nothing else, it should be this unalterable fact: what you do with your time here on earth is far more important than the time you had to do it. Those who live most are those who love most, who act the noblest and do their best.


Michael Mullen

Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff
