Unforgettable Memorial Day Weekend quotations
Some days I wish I could go back in life. Not to change anything, but to feel a few things twice.
They fell, but o'er their glorious grave Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save.
Our cheer goes back to them, the valiant dead! Laurels and roses on their graves to-day, lilies and laurels over them we lay, and violets o'er each unforgotten head.
One day, you will wake up and there won't be any more time to do the thing you've always wanted. Do it now.
Peace to each manly soul that sleepeth; Rest to each faithful eye that weepeth.
"Dead upon the field of glory," Hero fit for song and story.
Fold him in his country's stars. Roll the drum and fire the volley! What to him are all our wars, What but death bemocking folly?
I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.
Blow out, you bugles, over the rich Dead! There's none of these so lonely and poor of old, But, dying, has made us rarer gifts than gold.
Three times a year, theres Strategicon convention, and I go for the board games.
It happens Presidents Day, Labor Day, and Memorial Day weekends. You go and take a look at the new board games and meet a couple of board game designers, and you can check out games you dont own from the library and then return them.
Memorial Day, the reason for it, fewer and fewer people know.
It's just the first real weekend of summer, three-day weekend and so forth, barbecues, what have you. That's why I think education is important. I'm really glad my dad drilled into me these things that he had lived through and it helped me relate to him better and understand the things he thought were important and why he was raising me the way he was.
