The Saddest Holiday on the Calendar

Memorial Day. A national pause to honor the legion who have died in service to this country.

Ray Charles tells it like it is.

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!
