Memorial Day

By in Holidays with 0 Comments

I went to my favorite quote website to see if I could find a good Memorial Day-related quote to post as my Facebook status for the day.  The problem was that I found a lot that I liked.  As I really only felt like I could choose one for Facebook, I decided to list many of the ones I liked here –

On thy grave the rain shall fall from the eyes of a mighty nation!  ~Thomas William Parsons


Green sods are all their monuments; and yet it tells
A nobler history than pillared piles,
Or the eternal pyramids.
~James Gates Percival


For love of country they accepted death…  ~James A. Garfield (that may be my favorite)

 

They fell, but o’er their glorious grave
Floats free the banner of the cause they died to save.
~Francis Marion Crawford

 

The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men.
~Minot J. Savage

 

They are dead; but they live in each Patriot’s breast,
And their names are engraven on honor’s bright crest.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for,
Is their monument to-day, and for aye.
~Thomas Dunn English

 

See what I mean??  There’s a ton of them.  I’m so thankful for the people who gave their lives, so that I might live freely.  Twenty-four hours doesn’t seem long enough to pay them homage.

Cari McGee

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
