Memorial day: thank you

This scene is of Comer Georgia. It seems to be the quintessential American scene, birdhouse, white picket fence, US flag. Is this what Memorial Day is all about?

Or this, the New England cape, the northern states where the Revolution happened? The long history and the quaint decorated homes lining the street where the parade will come?

Or this, families at the park, grilling and playing?

Naw. It's about the soldiers who sacrificed for us. The ones who died in battle, or afterward from disease or injuries. It's about the brave protecting the weak. The strong who stood ready but whom have finished their race. To these I say, thank you!
