It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining be- fore us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that gov- ernment of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not per- ish from the earth." I hope that amidst the outdoor activities that you may have partak- en in over Memorial Day weekend that a moment was taken to re- member those we have lost through our many centuries of war and con- flict. In the Civil War's aftermath, the American orator, Robert Green In- gersoll, eloquently memorialized its more than 600,000 dead. I be- lieve his words speak for all who perished in America's name, They read: "They died for liberty- they died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless... Earth may run red with other wars, but they are at peace. In the midst of battles, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death." They are indeed the few, the proud, and the glorious. I salute all those who currently serve, those who were drafted, and those who died in service of this country. Classically said, let us not forget who gave their lives, dignity and sanity for these United States of America.
