Opinion | Bruce Butler: Remembering those who serve
As I write this, Memorial Day is upon us. As you read this, Memorial Day has either just passed (if you’re reading the print edition) or is waning. Ronald Reagan reminded us: “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, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” It is appropriate to thank all our military members, their families, veterans, and first responders for their service on Memorial Day, but it is important to remember Memorial Day is a solemn day or remembrance for those who paid the ultimate price in service to our country and did not come home. It is a day to embrace their families and be thankful for the life and luxuries we enjoy, and often take for granted, because of their sacrifice.
