Your body will argue that there is no justifiable reason to continue. Your only recourse is to call on your spirit, which fortunately functions independently of logic.
Timothy Noakes, author of Lore of Running

Today is not about beaches, BBQs, and celebrations, but about service and sacrifice. Memorial Day (or Decoration Day as it was originally known) is set aside to place flowers on the graves of those who have fallen and remember the price that they have paid for our freedom.
