Marched For Our Fallen Heroes.
"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction.  It is not ours by inheritance, it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people.  Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."
(Quote from Ronald Reagan before he was President)
