Memorial Day Meaning – Reagan’s Speech
President Ronald Reagan is credited with reviving the practice of honoring Memorial Day and its meaning. .
“Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again. It’s a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those of her children who rest in this cemetery and others. It’s a day to be with the family and remember.”

Hi everybody, it’s David here. Right now we are currently in the Philippines shooting for the mini series I have been filming, Nandito Ako. I just thought I’d make a video about a thought, thoughts I have, while I’m gone.Of course I haven’t left yet, at this point. Just wondering about my mission and how things are going to go. It will be interesting being gone for two years. I am wondering what kind of people I am going to meet while I am gone.
I wonder about the people who I am close to, my family, my friends. How they will be. How they will grow on their own while I am gone away and not in contact or in touch with them anymore.
It’s kind of a neat thing to think about,too. It’s a scary thought that I won’t have my family and friends there or the people that I am used to growing up with, but that’s what’s exciting too. I will be growing in my own way, in a way I wouldn’t ever get to normally, because I wouldn’t ever separate myself from everything I am comfortable with.
So it’s always challenging , but I think its those challenges that we look forward to and that’s how we grow, right? I am looking forward to that challenge. I am worried about it because I do worry about my family, people I care about. Even the fans, you know? I wonder how everyone is going to continue with life as I am not a normal part of it anymore.I can’t wait to bring back the person I have become, while I have that time away.
So that’s my thought for now, inside David’s head, before he is gone. A thought to put to you guys while I am gone. And I will say more later!
