Memorial Day
2011

The Gettysburg Address, written by Abraham Lincoln prior to the first Memorial Day articulates beautifully the full expression of my thoughts. .... we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. ...that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Abraham Lincoln November 19, 1863 Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 and was first enacted to honor soldiers of the American Civil War. Originally called Decoration Day, it was set aside as a day of remembrance and reconciliation and was extended after World War I to honor all the men and women who have died while serving their country. On this day of memories, heroism, and sorrow let us not forget those men and women who gave all for our freedoms.
