Measure of a Man

Memorial Day is about the men and women who died in the defense of the nation. Most particularly it’s about the men who died in the Civil War.

Such men as this saved America from its enemies — in this instance, from domestic enemies seeking to become foreign. The measure of these men was impressive indeed, and we owe our freedom to them.

We have holidays and memorials and parades because saying “Thank you” seems insufficient.
