Honor the Last Full Measure of Devotion on Memorial Day

Memorial-Day-Poetry-2911This weekend is Memorial Day weekend in the United States. On Monday we will stop and remember those of our fellow citizens who have died in war, fighting for our country and our values.

Every country has this tradition, and we applaud everyone who takes the time to think about the contributions of their friends, family members and community members who chose to fight, and sacrificed themselves with what President Abraham Lincoln called “the last full measure of devotion” in his speech at the battlefield of Gettysburg in 1863.

On a more hopeful and forward-looking note, Memorial Day is also the traditional “first day of summer” in the U.S., much as June 1 is in many other parts of the world. We hope you add joy to your celebrations this weekend. We think that would be the way our fallen soldiers would prefer we celebrate their memory!

We look forward to talking to many of you in the near future about your professional plans for the rest of the year. But this weekend take the time to remember, and celebrate the memories of those we have a duty to honor. Thank you.
