Memorial Day Salute To Our Heroes
Honor the final sacrifice
We honor the final sacrifice
of our service men and women
by dedicating our own lives
to peace and the defense of freedom.
For these ideals they fought
and for these ideals we continue to strive.
May we stand with diligence and with
humility on the broad shoulders
of those whose brave deeds and
sacrifice we memorialize today.
Let all of us commit this day,
whether in public ceremony
or in quiet reflection over a single grave,
to remember them in fitting tribute.
George W. Bush
