    Eleanor Roosevelt's Wartime Prayer

    Dear Lord,

    Lest I continue
    My complacent way,
    Help me to remember that somewhere,
    Somehow out there
    A man died for me today.
    As long as there be war,
    I then must
    Ask and answer
    Am I worth dying for?

    Memorial Day was always 30 May, congress changed the day to the last Monday in May, there is a Bill trying to reestablish the original 30 May as Memorial Day regardless of the day that it falls on...be it a nice convenient Monday or the middle of the week...
    God Bless those who perished for us...

    Hear - Hear...

    They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
    Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
    They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
    They fell with their faces to the foe.
    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.
