Happy Memorial Day

Tomorrow is Memorial Day here in the United States of America. This day is particularly meaningful to me as my family has sacrificed many members to insure the safety and freedom of this great nation. We have had someone in the United States military from the Revolutionary War and up to and including the current conflicts overseas.
As we take a moment to remember our fallen heroes, the heroes who came home and the heroes who are still over there, let’s not forget what they fought for.
We have freedom of speech, we have the right to lawful assembly, we have to right to worship God the way we want, not the way the nation dictates, women have the right to dress how they see fit, not how someone dictates to them, we can say what we want, when we want to whom we want. This is all thanks to our amazing men and women who give their lives serving us.
I am in awe of anyone who makes this sacrifice, it is not only the selflessness of the individual, it involves their family as well. Let’s not forget the mothers and fathers who send their children, the wives and husbands who send their spouses off with assurance all will be taken care of at home until their safe return, the children who say goodbye to parents, they all make sacrifices so our country can continue to be the best in the world.
So, to the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard privates to the officers, I salute you, thank you, pray for you and am in awe of you.
