President Trump Issues Stirring Memorial Day Tribute to Fallen American Soldiers

The President’s words were both stirring and solemn.

Today is a solemn day for America, in spite of what you might see at your local beach or bar.  Memorial Day isn’t meant to be a celebration, at least not in the giddy way.  This is a moment when we reflect on the sacrifices of those who gave it all so that we can enjoy this American freedom.

President Trump understands this explicitly, and has offered some rousing words on the subject today.

President Trump on Monday visited Arlington National Cemetery and Baltimore’s historic Fort McHenry to honor fallen soldiers for Memorial Day as he touted America’s long history of courage and fortitude in the face of adversity — and sought to once more rally that national spirit in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

“Together, we will vanquish the virus, and America will rise from this crisis to new, and even greater heights,” Trump said at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. “As our brave warriors have shown us from the nation’s earliest days – in America, we are the captains of our own fate.

“No obstacle, no challenge, and no threat is a match for the sheer determination of the American people,” Trump continued. “This towering spirit permeates every inch of the hallowed soil beneath our feet.”

He continued…

“Every time we sing our anthem – every time its rousing chorus swells our hearts with pride— we renew the eternal bonds of loyalty to our fallen heroes,” Trump said. “We think of the soldiers who spent their final heroic moments on distant battlefields to keep us safe at home. We remember the young Americans who never got the chance to grow old but whose legacy will outlive us all.”

So, if you do find yourself in front of the grill or near the water with a cold beer in your hand, please remind yourself of why you are able to enjoy this day, and take a moment to reflect on those who made it possible.
