Memorial Day: A Day to Remember Our Fallen
On this Memorial Day…
…we offer a few words of thanks and remembrance.
In distant field of sunny France Where strangers come and go,
Amid the farms of Flanders, where The fragrant breezes blow,
Our solder-dead in quiet sleep ‘Neath crosses row on row.
Here shrapnel shells once shrieked and burst And took their toll of death;
The very wind, itself a foe, Bore poison on its breath.
Above their graves the birds now sing As round that home of yore,
When, carefree boys, they romped and played; Those childhood days soon o’er,
The boys to brave and strong men grown, They romped and played no more.
They put aside their childish toys, A man’s work each must do,
And when their country called for them, To her they answered true.
“We must protect our native land: She shall not suffer wrong
For she has reared and nurtured us, We’re men and we are strong.
We’ll bid good-bye to those we love; It will not be for long.”
With aching hearts and tear-dimmed eyes We watched them go away.
Some have returned but many sleep In foreign lands today.
Where English roses bloom and fade, In France where lilies grow,
Among the fields of Flanders, where The scarlet poppies blow,
Our soldier-dead are not forgot Though strangers come and go.

It is with great reverence that all of us here at Beach Mazda celebrate Memorial Day. As we begin the summer season here in Myrtle Beach, we pause to express our gratitude for the men and women of our military who have given their lives in sacrifice so that we may enjoy the benefits of living in the greatest nation in the world. We thank their families and loved ones as well, for we understand they too have paid a great price.
