LTM Editorial: Remembering the fallen
This coming Monday is Memorial Day, an event designed to pay tribute to the men and women who have died defending the country during military service.
In the years after the American Civil War, memorial events were held piecemeal across a country that had shed precious blood on both sides of a terrible conflict.
Celebrating from different perspectives, residents of the north and south both paid respect to the sons and neighbors that had been lost. Over time – because time does heal even the deepest divisions – Memorial Day became a national holiday, remember all of the service man and women lost during service and reminding us that we are now a nation united in a single destiny.
Across the street from our office, outside the old courthouse sit a series of large memorials, each listing the names of those sons and daughters of Loudoun County who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Wherever you go during Memorial Day, be it in Sterling, Leesburg or at your own home for a barbeque to mark the beginning of summer, consider taking a moment to stop by these memorials sometime in the coming months.
It’s worth your time to stop and read over the names, many of which may seem familiar if you know the people of the area. Pause and remember those who gave everything for a cause they believe in.
