I Took this photograph Friday May 27, 2016 at the NH State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen, NH. I spent two hours there and I cannot begin to express how humble I felt walking throughout the rows of head stones. On this Memorial day take time to remember how fortunate we are that these brave men and women made the ultimate sacrifice and served their country.
It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before 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 government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
