Today We The People honor our war dead who served and died for our country for us all to have the freedom we have today. We should never take for granted the price our war dead paid for the freedoms you and me have today. We are no longer protected from two oceans that I would say was the case even as far up to the Korean war. With so many countries in the Middle East who want us dead it is beholding of the President of the United States Donald Trump to give the military all the weapons and advancement it needs to ensure the American peoples safety. We The People are very fortunate now to have a president who understands his main mission is protecting We The People from attack and is doing everything possible to supply the military the advanced weaponry it needs to do just that.
The following was published by timeanddate.com: “Memorial Day started as an event to honor Union soldiers who had died during the American Civil War. It was inspired by the way people in the Southern states honored their dead. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women who died in any war or military action.”
“Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. The current name for this day did not come into use until after World War II. Decoration Day and then Memorial Day used to be held on May 30, regardless of the day of the week, on which it fell. In 1968, the Uniform Holidays Bill was passed as part of a move to use federal holidays to create three-day weekends. This meant that that, from 1971, Memorial Day holiday has been officially observed on the last Monday in May. However, it took a longer period for all American states to recognize the new date.”
We The People must always honor all veterans but to have died for ones country is an overpowering feeling of respect that all Americans must give for their fallen comrades from the heart. America has endured many wars that with God’s blessings have been victorious where it has not effected the way you and me live; there has not been aircraft bombing our homeland as Europe witnessed during both World Wars. It is one thing to honor our dead and it would be criminal not to give our comrades in battle who are there fighting for you and me all the means needed in their disposal to ensure victory for We The People and for our war dead in past wars for their sacrifices not to have gone in vain. We now have a President in Donald Trump who will do just that! It is our fallen who have brought our nation forward to this point in history who we are honoring today and We The People should never let them down by not providing the United States all the means possible to defeat any future enemy. God Bless our fallen heroes, God Bless President Trump, God Bless the United States of America!
