Memorial Day Message by Dr. Tsatsu Nyamadi- President of CEANA

Memorial Day Message:
Dear Esteemed Members of CEANA.

As we gather today to commemorate Memorial Day, we reflect upon the sacrifices made by our brave servicemen and women. This solemn occasion reminds us of the profound debt we owe to those who laid down their lives in defense of freedom, justice, and democracy.


Memorial Day is not merely a day off from work or a time for barbecues and picnics. It is a sacred moment when we pause to honor the fallen—those who faced unimaginable challenges on distant battlefields, those who left behind families and dreams, and those whose courage and valor continue to inspire generations.

Let us remember the soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy, the airmen who flew perilous missions, the sailors who navigated treacherous waters, and the marines who fought in jungles and deserts. Their sacrifices echo through time, reminding us that liberty is never free.

As members of CEANA, we also pay tribute to our Ghanaian heritage. Our ancestors fought for independence, justice, and equality. They, too, made sacrifices—sometimes with their lives—to secure a better future for us. Let us honor their memory by upholding the principles they cherished: unity, resilience, and compassion.
In our own lives, may we strive to be worthy of their legacy. Let us support one another, advocate for justice, and work tirelessly to build a world where peace prevails over conflict, and where the flame of hope burns brightly.
On this Memorial Day, let us bow our heads in gratitude and remembrance. Let us teach our children the stories of valor and sacrifice, so that they, too, understand the weight of freedom’s price.


May the memory of the fallen be eternal, and may their courage inspire us to be better stewards of the world they fought to protect.
With deepest respect,
