We remember.

Most monuments to soldiers remembrances include a line from Horace: "Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori." - "Sweet and righteous it is to die for one's country." True? Yes. But these markers also are reminders of a greater gift. Not freedom, but love. 

"No greater love is there than to lay down one's life for a friend." 

Thank you, friends.
