The Price of Freedom

Today Americans pause to remember those who have given their lives to protect our country. We tend to take our freedom and prosperity for granted. There are good times and bad, but The United  States of America stands as an ideal other countries aspire to. We, along with our allies, represent a way of life that many in our world don’t have.

Whatever else you’re doing today, take a few minutes to think about the price that has, and is being, paid for all you have. We owe a lot to men and women we never met, many of whom were gone long before we were born.

While we’re remembering lost soldiers, let’s also remember those who are currently serving our country. Whatever differences we as individuals have, we should be able to come together in our thanks to those who protect and support our way of life.

To them all, THANK YOU!
