Nowadays many Americans have forgotten the meaning and traditions of Memorial Day. At cemeteries across the country the graves of the fallen are sadly ignored and worse neglected.
While there are towns and cities still planning Memorial Day parades many have not held a parade in decades. Some think the day is for honoring anyone who has died not just those fallen in service to our country.
I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.
My fellow Americans ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country.
The people that make this country work the people who pay on their mortgages the people getting up and going to work striving in this recession to not participate in it they're not the enemy. They're the people that hire you. They're the people that are going to give you a job.
If you work hard and play by the rules this country is truly open to you. You can achieve anything.
It's hard to do it because you gotta look people in the eye and tell 'em they're irresponsible and lazy. And who's gonna wanna do that? Because that's what poverty is ladies and gentlemen. In this country you can succeed if you get educated and work hard. Period. Period.
There is a vast world of work out there in this country where at least 111 million people are employed in this country alone - many of whom are bored out of their minds. All day long.
We had like a jolt of women in country and it seems like we're just kind of there now.
Men like women who write. Even though they don't say so. A writer is a foreign country.
It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact in every presidential election since 1950 - except Goldwater in '64 - the Republican would have won if only the men had voted.
What Democratic congressmen do to their women staffers Republican congressmen do to the country.
Wealthy women have rights in every country. And poor women don't.
If a country doesn't recognize minority rights and human rights including women's rights you will not have the kind of stability and prosperity that is possible.
We don't pray for the land. We pray for the humans all humans... starting with the president Mohammed Morsi and all officials and for God to give everyone wisdom and responsibility to manage the affairs of this country and its people in true Egyptian spirit.
India is known for its sobriety and wisdom balanced and sensible thinking. We need strong institutions and we need good governance in the country.
This land which we have watered with our tears and our blood is now our mother country and we are well satisfied to stay where wisdom abounds and gospel is free.
Dr. Johnson has said that the chief glory of a country arises from its authors. But then that is only as they are oracles of wisdom unless they teach virtue they are more worthy of a halter than of the laurel.
Now our founding fathers had the wisdom to know that social acceptance and popularity were fleeing and that this country's principles needed to be rooted in strengths greater than the passions and the emotions of the times.
I believe we have become paralyzed paralyzed by our desire to be loved. Now our founding fathers had the wisdom to know that social acceptance and popularity were fleeing and that this country's principles needed to be rooted in strengths greater than the passions and the emotions of the times.
How do you tell troops who volunteered to fight for our freedoms that the country they fought for won't take care of them when they come back? In the time of war our troops and their families are supposed to be our number one priority.
During the Cold War we were interested because we were scared that Russia and the United States were going to go to war. We were scared that Russia was going to take over the world. Every country became a battleground.
I took every chance I could to meet with U.S. soldiers. I talked with them and read the books they gave me about the war. I decided I needed to return to my country and join with them - active duty soldiers and Vietnam Veterans in particular - to try and end the war.
If we stick together as an American people we can bring down the war criminals that are running our country right now.
