Without those who have sacrificed their lives, we would not have the lives we have. Men and women die every day, and have died throughout the past, in the name of God and country. No matter if you agree with war or abhor it, the fact that so many have laid down their lives as their duty to their country is what we remember today. Some served in the Armed forces and lost their lives as a result. Others were serving their country through civilian ties to military functions. Anyone that serves or has served their country, our country, deserves respect, admiration, and remembrance on this day, Memorial Day.
