Please celebrate those who defended our nation and her allies.

Memorial Day
Rejoice in LEADERSHIP, you righteous;
it is good to sing praises for the just.

Help us to love our enemies.
Lead them and us from prejudice to truth;
let truth be for liberty with justice and providence;
deliver them and us from hatred, cruelty, violence and revenge;
and in your good time enable us all to stand reconciled before you
for each other.
We the people declare our unity to form a more perfect union.
Our union will establish justice, protect security, contract alliances,
establish commerce, provide for the common defense,
promote the general welfare and secure the blessings
of liberty for posterity.

We ordain the Constitution for the United States of America
with the bill of rights for liberty with justice and providence.
Our union calls for firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.
This protection will provide for our respective rights and liberties.
We pledge our lives, prosperity and honor to each other.

Our beautiful heroes proved in liberating strife,
they loved their country with mercy more than life!
America has tried us that we may be refined.
Our success will be nobleness.
Our every gain divine!
Our beautiful patriotic dream sees beyond the years.
Our alabaster cities gleam washed with human tears.
America shed your grace on each.
Crown our good with neighborhood
to each within your reach!

Celebrate the defense of freedom. Stand opposed to torture, excessive force and wars of aggression.

May you find comfort in gratitude with reserve.
