On Memorial Day, Do at Least One Thing: Remember Those that Gave the Ultimate Sacrifice

On Memorial Day, Do at Least One Thing: Remember Those that Gave the Ultimate Sacrifice

Memorial Day is a time to remember the men and women who have died serving our country. This special day is not the only time we should remember them but the holiday underscores the importance of having a time to revere and respect people who are sacred to our country. They are our heroes who are buried across America. They left home to go to hostile places and laid down their lives for us.

Take a moment and visit the grave of someone who died representing us. When you go take just a few moments and give thanks for that person who will be one of many, many thousands who have made what we have in America possible.

We take America for granted. We enjoy so much freedom, opportunity and protection. We are so far from perfect but nothing in the world is perfect.

The Louisiana State Police has a rich history dating back to 1922 with the establishment of the Louisiana Highway Commission consisting of 16 motorcycle patrol officers.

Rising at 3:00 a.m. Shah Mir arrives at Grand Cane Station by 4:00 a.m. to greet his first customers. As the only gas station between Mansfield and Kickapoo along heavily traveled 171, commuters stop for a fill up and a beverage or hot breakfast. Each customer is greeted with a smile and by name or a descriptive nickname that Shah has given to his regulars.

The distance in miles between Shah’s hometown of Karachi on the Indian Ocean in the south of Pakistan and Grand Cane would seem to be great. Desiring to live in a more moderate climate, Shah’s parents had moved from the Himalayas of northern India to Karachi where he and his 8 brothers and sisters grew up.
