Memorial Day is the respect that is shown for the martyrs or brave men who have laid their lives for the sake of their country. It is a great sacrifice to lay down the life for a great cause and as Minot savage said, “the brave never die, though they sleep in dust. Their courage nerves a thousand living men”. The sacrifice of these brave men is a great source of inspiration and guidance for thousands of others. “On thy grave the rain shall from the eyes of a mighty nation “are the words of Thomas William parsons. If not for the brave soldiers, the frontiers of a country would be in constant peril and the other citizens cannot live in peace and happiness. Hence the Memorial Day should not be mourned but must be saluted for their sacrifice and honor that they have undergone. Read these quotes on Memorial Day and get inspired.
