One reason is to remember those who have fought in the war. We also do this to remember those who have died in battle for the U.S. This is because the families for those who have returned or died can celebrate what they did for our country. We forget some times that people are fighting a war. Also, we can remember who we are and who they are. If you could just think about it, you can realize that people work hard for America.” Activate yourself to duty by remembering your position, who you are, and what you have obliged yourself to be.” – Thomas Kempis can show that who we are and what we do should never change.
