Memorial Day

I pray that our Heavenly Father
may assuage the anguish of your bereavement,
and leave you only the cherished memory of the
loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours,
to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom.
-- Abraham Lincoln, November 1864

In remembrance of the brave men and women who have died defending our country.

You are not forgotten.

  1. Happy Memorial Day. And a great excerpt from a famous letter. I have a copy of this one somewhere. I might have to dig it up.

  2. I'm always so impressed with Amy's pictures. A beautiful post, all around.

  3. Lincoln's pray is as true today as it was then. Thank you for sharing it.

  4. That daughter of yours has some talent! I love that excerpt. As a Canadian, I didn't instantly recognize it but it is beautiful! I hope you are having a great day with your family.
