In memory of all those that lost their lives that tragic day...
brings us the following
report and it starts off like this…
Nouri al-Maliki, Iraq’s Prime Ministerfor the past eight years, announced today he
would relinquish his role to fellow Shiite and Dawa Party member Haider
al-Abadi… With Sunni-based terrorist group ISIS, also
known as Islamic State, threatening the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq’s President

The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the
most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple.
Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring
Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist. As Dennis Prager explains, this is really
all you need to know. In 5 minutes, understand how Israel was founded, and how,

Taking a moment to remember those that made
the ultimate sacrifice while serving this great Country of ours

is a day for all Americans to gather with friends and family in communities
across the country to enjoy each other’s company, and honor those generations
of patriots who have fought and died in uniform to preserve the freedoms we all
cherish. We also grieve with those families who lost loved ones too soon
– parents, wives, husbands, sons, and daughters for whom Memorial Day will
always be a time of solemn remembrance. The perseverance and resilience
of our military families is the bedrock of our military strength.
more than a decade of sustained war, the United States has been blessed to have
millions of men and women step forward to serve, to risk their lives and stand
watch in every corner of the world to defend our nation. Today we
remember the more than 6,600 men and women in uniform who have perished on
distant battlefields since September 11th, 2001.
men and women that serve today are as humble, patriotic, and selfless as any
generation that has come before them. Many have deployed on multiple
tours – active duty, guardsmen, and reservists – all citizens doing their part
for the country they love. They continue to make enormous sacrifices,
along with their families. We owe them and their families our most
heartfelt thanks and constant support, for they have added another chapter to
our nation’s book of honor.
