Honor the Fallen

“A hero is someone who has given his or
her life to something bigger than oneself.”

— Joseph Campbell

“The Americans who rest beneath these beautiful hills and in sacred ground across our country and around the world, they are why our nation endures. Each simple stone marker arranged in perfect military precision, signifies the cost of our blessings. It is a debt we can never fully repay, but it is a debt we will never stop trying to fully repay, by remaining a nation worthy of their sacrifice. Like generations of heroes before them, these Americans gave everything they had — not for glory, not even for gratitude, but for something greater than themselves.”

— President Obama, Memorial Day tribute - May 25th, 2015
