But just because we’re now on the first Friday of June and Memorial Day has passed, it doesn’t mean that we should ignore the what the day actually means. You see, in my opinion, we should never forget those who laid down their lives for a cause greater than themselves nor should we forget that their sacrifice presents a genuine challenge for us all. As Abraham Lincoln said at the end of the Gettysburg Address:
It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
