I love that these beautiful flags are places along the fence at our local cemetery. What a beautiful tribute to those men and women who served, and still serve our country with honor, dignity and bravery . . . God Bless America!
In the Civil War’s aftermath, the American orator, Robert Green Ingersoll eloquently memorialized its more than 600,000 dead. I believe his words speak for all who have perished in America’s name. They read:
“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 . . . Earth may run red with other wars, but they are at peace. In the midst of battles, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death.”
