Memorial Day – A Look Back
Memorial Day has, once more, come and gone. What should be a day to remember the sacrifices of our Fallen Warriors, who gave their lives defending our Nation, has become an excuse for a three day holiday. It is sad, really, that too many Americans have no concept of what those brave, Fallen Warriors sacrificed for them. Many do understand, but far too many haven’t a clue. Those Fallen Warriors took their Oath seriously, pledging their lives, their honor and their fortune, that others may live in the land governed by a Constitution that recognizes the Individual Natural Rights of all men and women. They were willing to sacrifice everything, that others may be free.
We, at Oath Keepers, salute those Fallen Warriors. We will not forget their sacrifice. And we will continue to stand by the Constitution, and for the Rights of all Americans. There are those who think the Constitution is just a piece of paper. It is far more than that. It is America. It is what we believe in. To deny that is to disrespect the sacrifices of our Fallen Warriors, of those who fought to defend the America they believe in.
Every day should be Memorial Day. Each American should, each day, remember what our Fallen Warriors fought, and died, for.
Today, our Natural Rights are being attacked as never before. It is time for all Americans to stand up and say, NO, to those who deny our Natural Rights. It is time for meely-mouthed politicians to step down, if they will not observe the Constitution, and the Oath they took to defend and protect it.
