This Memorial day is one where I find myself deeply conflicted. Today is not about me in any way shape or form. Do NOT read that into this at all. Memorial day is not about picnics, barbeques, having a great big party nor is it a day to get drunk, wasted, stoned, wired, you know what I mean. The meaning of Memorial day has gotten lost. In my opinion I feel that it has become somewhat perverted and the true meaning of honoring those who gave their all, paid the ultimate price, contaminated by statist, progressive, regressive re-writing and definitions. I look at who, what is the so called POTUS of our once fine Republic and he, who shall not be named in this post, is not the commander and chief. He is not a leader, but a coward, who is an insult to those who have paid such a high price to keep us free.
Those who sacrificed it all, have served, are currently serving, deserve our honor and respect. They do not need the hollow words of a manufactured traitor, one who would all but spit on the tomb of the unknown soldier and stab our military men and women in their collective backs.
This image of a lone Eagle, seeming to be on guard duty in a cemetery is one of the most powerful images I have ever looked upon. I love Eagles and always have. A sentinel is what came to my mind right away. I know many of you have seen this image, maybe a few times too many if that is possible. For me, it is not.
Thank you to all who have paid the highest price, who answered the call of our Republic when our country needed you. Thank you to all to are currently serving. I stand in your shadow, offering my respect, honor, prayers for your service and dedication. This seems like such a small offering from my heart for those who have served, are serving and who deserve the best we can give them and their respective families.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
May HE watch over each and every one of you, for eternity. May those who have been called home be washed in the bright sunlight of His truth. PatriotUSA
Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
From the NASB Bible which is what I read and study.
