This is a blog post that is hard for me to write about without getting emotional. I feel like there isn't enough words I can put into this blog post to truly describe the feeling Memorial Day gives me. Sure, it's a day that a lot of people BBQ, visit the beach, enjoy the unofficial kickoff of summer... but for me, it's more... it's deeper. My blog posts are all about décor inspiration for you home & I hope this blog post brings some inspo to your hearts if you're looking for patriotic ways to decorate. But, instead of writing a long blog post... I'm going to use the rest of this blog post to share with you my favorite quotes to remember on Memorial Day.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." –Ronald Reagan
"Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them." –Franklin D. Roosevelt
"Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it." –Unknown
"This nation will remain the land of the free only as long as it is home of the brave." –Elmer Davis
"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived." –George S. Patton
"And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free. And I won't forget the men who died, who gave that right to me." –Lee Greenwood
