Memorial Day is a day of celebration but it’s also a day of reflection.

Let’s take a moment to remember the men and women who lost their lives while serving our country and thank them.



“The legacy of heroes is the memory of a great name and the inheritance of a great example.”- Benjamin Disraeli, British statesman

“Who kept the faith and fought the fight; The glory theirs, the duty ours.” — Wallace Bruce

“How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” – Maya Angelou

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” – President John F. Kennedy

“All we have of freedom, all we use or know – This our fathers bought for us long and long ago. – Rudyard Kipling in The Old Issue

“The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men.” – Minot J. Savage, preacher and speaker

“We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them.” – Francis A. Walker

“I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day. I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did. ” – Benjamin Harrison, 23rd President of the United States

“A man’s country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.” -George William Curtis, writer

“And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free, and I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.” – lyrics from country singer Lee Greenwood’s “Proud to be an American”

“And each man stands with his face in the light of his own drawn sword. Ready to do what a hero can.” – Elizabeth Barrett Browning, poet

“The story of America’s quest for freedom is inscribed on her history in the blood of her patriots.” – Randy Vader, lyricist

“The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children.” –William Harvard, author

“Soldier, rest! Thy warfare o’er.” – Sir Walter Scott, novelist, pot, playwright

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” – Albert Einstein, genius

I believe that the more penny auction bidders that come together and post their honest experiences, exposing the shady-scam penny auction sites, the less and less shady-scam sites will stop being the majority in the penny auction industry. Stand with me.
