MY THOUGHT 10246
MEMORIAL DAY:
MY COUNTRY TO ’TIS OF THEE, SWEET LAND OF LIBERTY.
FOR THEE I HAVE SURVIVED AND FOR THEE MANY HAVE DIED.
HONOR THE SURVIVORS ON VETERANS DAY,
AND HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE DIED ON MEMORIAL DAY.EmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10247
MEMORIAL DAY
MEMORIES OF PAST BATTLES BOTH DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN
MEMORIES OF THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR ALL.
MEMORIES OF BROKEN AND WOUNDED RETURNING HOME.
MEMORIES OF THOSE WHO KNOW ARE NO LONGER WITNESSES.
LISTEN TO THE WITNESSES BEFORE THEIR STORIES ARE FORGOTTENEmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10248
MEMORIAL DAY:
MANY HAVE DIED ON THE BATTLEFIELDS, BOTH DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN.
MANY HAVE PASSED LONG AFTER THE BATTLES TO WOUNDS, BOTH PHYSICAL AND MENTAL.
MANY HAVE PASSED DUE TO NEGLECT AND MISTREATMENT.
MANY ARE DAILY MOVING FROM THE RANKS OF VETERAN INTO THE RANKS OF THE EVER GROWING MEMORIAL DAY PARADE.EmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10249
MEMORIAL DAY:
TODAY I HONOR MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ARMS
WE HAVE WALKED IN HARMS WAY TOGETHER
SOME OF US RETURNED HOME WHOLE
SOME OF US RETURNED HOME BROKEN
SOME OF US STAYED BEHIND
NONE OF US SHOULD EVER BE FORGOTTEN
EmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10250
MEMORIAL DAY: IF YOU ARE A VETERAN SURVIVOR, MEMORIAL DAY IS THE DAY TO TELL THE STORIES OF THOSE THAT YOU HAVE SURVIVED. INSTEAD OF TALKING ABOUT HOW THEY MET THEIR DEMISE, TALK ABOUT THEIR CHARACTER AND THEIR HUMANITY. TALK ABOUT THE THINGS THAT YOU HAD SHARED AS A BAND OF BROTHERS AND SISTERS. EmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10241
QUESTION 3311: MEMORIAL DAY: DO YOU HAVE ANY VETERANS AMONG YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS, AND ACQUAINTANCES WHO ARE NEAR THE END OF YOUR JOURNEY? IS SHE/HE READY TO JOIN THE RANKS OF THOSE TO BE HONORED AND REMEMBERED ON MEMORIAL DAY? EmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10242
QUESTION 3312: MEMORIAL DAY: DID YOU VISIT A VFW OR VETERANS HOSPITAL AND SHOW YOUR LOVE, COMPASSION, AND UNDERSTANDING FOR THOSE VETERANS WHO ARE STILL HERE? ARE YOU AWARE THAT SOON MANY OF THEM WILL NO LONGER BE HONORED ON VETERANS DAY, BUT WILL SOON BE ON MEMORIAL DAY? EmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10243
QUESTION 3313: MEMORIAL DAY: EVERY DAY, MANY VETERANS ARE JOINING THE RANKS OF THE FALLEN. WILL YOU TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEMONSTRATE YOUR LOVE, COMPASSION, AND UNDERSTANDING TO THEM BY LENDING THEM AN EAR AND DEMONSTRATING YOUR LOVE, COMPASSION, AND UNDERSTANDING DURING THEIR FINAL DAYS AND HOURS? EmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10244
MEMORIAL DAY: IF YOU HAVE SURVIVED THE BATTLES, BOTH DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN, ARE YOU AWARE THAT IT IS YOUR DUTY TO INFORM THE WORLD OF THOSE WHO DID NOT SURVIVE? ARE YOU ALSO AWARE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DESCRIBE HOW YOUR BUDDIES MET THEIR DEMISE; HOWEVER, YOU CAN MEMORIALIZE THEIR CHARACTERS AND PERSONALITIES SO THAT THEY WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN? EmilKoval©2016

MY THOUGHT 10245
MEMORIAL DAY: DO NOT FORGET TO HONOR EVEN THOSE VETERANS WHO HAVE COMMITTED SUICIDE. THEY HAVE UNDERGONE SUCH STRIFE AND PAIN THAT THEY COULD NO LONGER ENDURE THE PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PAIN OF THEIR PHYSICAL INJURIES AND THE LACK OF COMPASSION OF THEIR CAREGIVERS. EmilKoval©2016
