In this short episode of the podcast, we reflect on the importance of Memorial Day and we talk about the history of the holiday and why it is such an important holiday of reflection and sacrifice here in the United States.
We also shared a Memorial Day poem from Lenore Hetrick.
by Lenore Hetrick
If we remember those who are gone
Then they live again.
They are here once more, they smile and speak,
Just as do living men.
So let's give our thoughts to the brave,
Upon this Memorial Day.
In spiritual fellowship, let us speak,
And listen to what they say.
For a soldier who died for his country must know
Much that he could tell,
And if we caught the message it might
Serve us oft and well.
So in our memories, let the dead
Linger often and long.
Recollections of that kind live,
And are like a springtime song.
