Freedom. With the end of the Memorial Day weekend we must consider how fortunate we are to live in America.
We are free to vote, to express our opinions, and to pursue our dreams if we do not violate the law or deprive another of their rights.
This freedom has been protected by men and women throughout America’s history and continues to be protected today.
Men and women who we do not know stand guard for this country. Some are here on our shores. Others are away from their families, in other lands, fulfilling the duties of America’s military. They sacrifice their lives and families for America.
Their work takes courage, but it also takes great love. Love of country and its citizens. A love that includes a willingness to sacrifice and live a dangerous life for people that they may never know.
To all these people, who guarded America in the past, and continue to guard her today and into the future, we remember you and say, “Thank You.”
