Memorial Day Ceremony at the Menlo Cementary Fern Hill on Monday. "The sacrifices of many are often forgotten by the privileges of freedom. The mere privileges we indulge upon that came at the cost of blood, sweat, tears, and life itself. Men and women have died for our country so that we may live a life of freedom, a life earned for us, not given. It is our duty to honor them for their selfless sacrifice and it is also our duty to make sure their sacrifices are never forgotten." ~ by Jeff Clemens
