"A Solemn Reminder"
Memorial Day began as Decoration Day three years after the most brutal and costly war in the history of our country. There were some more localized observances before the first national observance at Arlington National Cemetery on May 30, 1868. At that first national observance, speeches were given and then flowers were placed on the graves of both Union and Confederate fallen soldiers.
Major General John A. Logan gave this order and rationale for that first observance: “We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance. ... Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of reverent visitors and fond mourners. Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.”
The somber reminder of Memorial Day is that freedom comes at great cost. Assaults on the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of the United States of America did not end in the 19th century. Challenges to freedom have continued worldwide down through the ages. As a nation, we value not only our freedom but the freedom of others and since the Civil War almost all the loss of life by our brave men and women for freedom has been on foreign soil.
The Bible is clear that the greatest enemy of freedom is sin.
