Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 1,166
Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Morning Message! I want to dedicate this email to the countless men and women who have courageously given their life so we can have the freedoms we enjoy as an Americans. Wishing you and your loved ones a happy, healthy and safe Memorial Day! Let’s make it a great week!
Memorial Day by Frederick W. Emerson
Our Nation is reverently thinking today Of the loved ones sleeping beneath the cold clay; Of the sacrifice made, and the brave deeds done, To preserve our Union as a glorious one. We ne’er will be able to pay the great cost Of the noble, the true, and the brave that we’ve lost; But over their graves, with tears like the dew, We’ll lay our sweet flowers of red, white and blue.
Our Nation is paying its tribute today Upon the green mounds where its loyal men lay; While statesman, and orator, fondly repeat The story of those who knew no defeat. They tell of the Union united again, By the triumph of those who died not in vain; Of the forty-four states all loyal and free, Of the peace, and the freedom, from sea to sea. Our Nation is thinking, rejoicing, to day, While comrades are kneeling their tribute to pay; And hearts once sorrowing, rejoice now to see The “Star Spangled Banner,” the flag of the free. For out of their loyalty and brave deeds done, Out of their battles and their victories won, Came freedom and peace, and in liberty’s name Our banner floats freely, with glory and fame.
Our Nation is reverently thinking today Of the men now living who’ll soon pass away; Like the grass of the field and the flowers they spread O’er the graves of their comrades, immortal, dead, Tall monuments stand to their memory dear, But they crumble and fall, like the leaf when sere; Our Nation united, forever will stand, To those who preserved it, a monument grand. Wherever we gather today ‘neath “The Stars,” Let’s honor the living now wearing the scars Which they brought from the fields of battle and strife, While protecting “Our Flag,” and our Nation’s life. Let the flowers bear tribute in their simple way. And each one remember Memorial Day; Remember the dead, and the living, though few, Who fought ‘neath “The Stars,” and the red, white and blue.
