Memorial Day American Spirit May 2008 The idea of American Spirit is as diverse and complex as the people who make up our country. American Spirit is an incredible pride in our country, and all that it represents. It is a beckoning hope inspired by the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is a choice to make a difference in the world, born in the appreciation of freedom. It is the ingenuity of a democratic society, determined to forge ahead and overcome whatever obstacles might be in the way. This Memorial Day, we observe that American Spirit with a profound gratitude to each of you, and all those before you who have fought to protect our nation and make the world a better, safer place. We wish to thank each of you for giving so much of yourself on behalf of all of us. Messages from Home holiday.messages@yahoo.com

There are no words to truly express my
gratitude to all of you who have volunteered
to protect our country and freedom. I want
to thank you and all the troops serving
around the world that would be completely
forsaken if it were not for your courage and
dedication. You are in my thoughts and
prayers and may God Bless and keep you
safe.

"American Spirit" I am glad that the Americans have done so many good things for us Germans since WWII. I remember that my grandmother told me so often that our family was so glad to receive care packages from our American friends. The Americans have brought us freedom and they have helped us to rebuild our country. In the last 60 years the Americans protected our lives in the time as it was necessary. Over the years our countries have forged bonds of friendship. Thank you for your service! Yours sincerely, Wilhelmine (Willie) Aufmkolk from Germany german.american.friendship@gmail.com

Dear US Troops, Thank you for your brave service to keep our nation free. We are very fortunate to live in a Christian country which allows us to worship our God in peace and enjoy continued prosperity. Spiritual prosperity is by far the best and you have the same opportunity. Jesus Christ took your place and paid for your sins so that you might have eternal life. This is a free gift to you solely by belief in Jesus Christ. Sincerely, Annette Palouse, WA

Thank you for your service and for the sacrifices you make to keep our country free. Each day I pray for your protection and victory. May you find comfort and strength in knowing that the Lord watches over you. His love and concern for you are evident in the cross of His Son. "But God demonstrates His love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us," Romans 5:8. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved," Acts 16:31. Respectfully, Paula Schwartz Pullman, WA pspullman@gmail.com

Lord, Hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen.

Here's a heartfelt "Thank you!" for all you do to keep America safe and free. I pray that the Lord would protect and bless you. I'm also grateful for those who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our God-given freedoms. Such sacrifice reminds me of God's sacrifice: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life," John 3:16.

Upon this Memorial Day speaking of American Spirit means speaking of Democracy. Walt Whitman said Democracy is law, and of the strictest, amplest kind. An unshakeable order of the universe forever. Democracy alone can bind, and ever seeks to bind, all nations, all men of however various, and distant lands, making the races comrades. This is, Whitman said, what democracy is for. This is American Spirit, and thank you dear Troops, is what we say. Maria Daehn -Germany

Thank you so much for your service to our country and all it's citizens! Your strength, courage and selflessness inspire and make us all proud. My son is serving overseas, so I know the sacrifice your families make also. May God bless and protect you and your families.Praying for all of you. Mary, Proud Army mom

I've been there with the soldiers Who've gone away to war And you can bet that they remember Just what they're fighting for

Darryl Worley -Have You Forgotten Thank you for all that you do to keep America free. The personal sacrifices you have made will never be forgotten. You may think what you do is "just my job" although I've never looked at it that way. To be where you are and the risks you take putting your life on the line for us here at home is truly inspiring. Your courage, honor and commitment are recognized by this grateful American. The true patriotic spirit that comes from within is even more precious now in these times, so although you are away from home, your family, friends', please know that you have my deepest appreciation. I am very proud of each and everyone of you. I know it's not easy, and you have my 150% support now and forever. I will never stop supporting your efforts. God Bless You. God Bless America.

Dear Defender of America,

I just want to take a moment to Thank You very much for your bravery and sacrifice in the service of the Land that I Love. To me Memorial Day is much more than the official start of summer. It is the day we remember those who have exchanged all of their tomorrows for the Freedoms the rest of us enjoy today. I know many of you have lost friends in the Global War on Terror, and I'd like for you to know that there are very many American civilians who never knew them, but we will never forget them, and always honor the ultimate sacrifice that they made.

Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt wrote this prayer during the difficult days of WWII and said it everyday. So while our Troops are once more fighting to keep enemies distant from our shores, I have committed to saying this prayer each day: I just want to take a moment to Thank You very much for your bravery and s acrifice in the service of the Land that I Love. To me Memorial Day is much more than the official start of summer. It is the day we remember those who have exchanged all of their tomorrows for the Freedoms the rest of us enjoy today. I know many of you have lost friends in the Global War on Terror, and I'd like for you to know that there are very many American civilians who never knew them, but we will never forget them, and always honor the ultimate sacrifice that they made. Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt wrote this prayer during the difficult days of WWII and said it everyday. So while our Troops are once more fighting to keep enemies distant from our shores, I have committed to saying this prayer each day: "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?"

I will try everyday to earn the sacrifice that men and women are making on my behalf. I hope when the war is done that the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen will think that we were all worth dying for. God bless and protect you. All the best, to the best, Pat Shoukry – NYC (6 miles from "Ground Zero") Clutterbuster07054@yahoo.com

God Bless America The Proud and Brave Duty, Courage, Discipline. Honor above all. Watchwords of the proud and brave who heed their nation's call. We need to look no further for heroes strong and true than the forces who defend and serve the old "Red, White and Blue."

Thank you to all the extraordinary men and women in uniform who are doing extraordinary things to protect our freedom.

As I was putting together Messages from Home, I found out that my Great Uncle Bob had died. Had you met Uncle Bob on the street during his lifetime, you would have thought he was an ordinary man. He had been married, raised three daughters, and treasured his grandchildren. He worked as an accountant for decades and dabbled in small town government for a while. Before all that though, he was a Sergeant in the Army during WWII. He, my grandfather and his other brother Jim all enlisted and served our country because they were needed to fight a great evil. Much was asked of them, and they gave of themselves willingly so that people they cared about back home could continue to enjoy freedom. Uncle Bob never took our freedom for granted in the years since, and every Memorial Day, with steadfast devotion, he would join his brothers and brothers in arms to remember those who made even greater s acrifices. My uncle and his brothers taught me to appreciate my freedom, and to remember that it was worth fighting for. I will forever be grateful to him, and I am forever grateful to you for your service and for the sacrifices you have had to make to ensure that people you love will always be free. May God speed and bless you on your path. Kimberly Allen ~ Houston TX heroesnot4gotten@yahoo.com

I hope and pray for all our troops, those now embattled in this horror called war, and those who have fought in other battles; those who are fighting the governmental wars now for the rights that were given to them, yet denied later. There is no higher esteem, except for Christ and God, than to be a soldier protecting our Great Nation and all Humanity.
