I visited three cemeteries today and paid my respects to not just family members but also to our veterans. I found myself straitening many flags that were laying on the ground. So many gave their all for our freedom,thank you for my freedom and a way of life that would not be possible without your sacrifice.

I just can't resist,


"...As this nation honors it's unbroken line of fallen heroes, and I see many of them in the audience here today..."

Mr Obama see's fallen heroes?


"I see dead people."

Remembrance Day, Memorial Day,
call it what you will
I'll make my toast to the soldiers of Flanders Fields.

Quote:
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
