Flags at Half-Staff

Statement

On this Memorial Day, Hoosiers pause to remember those who have laid down their lives for the cause of freedom.

As we honor our heroes, flags are at half-staff and parades and festivals are occurring all over Indiana.

Memorial Day originated after the Civil War as a day to pay tribute to those who gave everything for the Republic.

As we continue tohonor our veterans, I am reminded of the second half of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address:

"It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to thatcause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

On this solemn day, please join me in praying for our country's fallen men and women and their families.
