Tomorrow is Memorial Day in America; a day to remember those who fought - and some who gave their lives - so that we might live in the greatest nation in the world.
Today America stands at a most important crossroads when it comes to our freedoms and the future of our sacred country.
So for this week's Quotable Sunday I using Presidential quotes that will hopefully help us each to remember the America we were once proud of; the America for which many soldiers shed blood.
"And so my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." - John F. Kennedy
"That government is best which governs the least, because its people discipline themselves." - Thomas Jefferson
"We are a nation that has a government—not the other way around. And that makes us special among the nations of the earth." - Ronald W. Reagan
"We need a spirit of community, a sense that we are all in this together. If we have no sense of community, the American dream will wither." - William Jefferson Clinton
"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." - Abraham Lincoln
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt
