Today is Memorial Day in the U.S., a day of remembering our Fallen Heroes.
While I hate the bloodiness of war and the loss that occurs, I have learned that there are those things that are worth fighting for and dying to defend.
Declaration of Independence: “…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”…
Constitution: (Preamble) “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”.
To each soldier that made the ultimate sacrifice, your precious life, I wish I could shake your hand and say “THANK YOU”!
Because of you, I enjoy the right to live in freedom, to work for and pursue the life I choose, as does each citizen of these United States.
To keep, to honor, to guard and protect this FREEDOM…your fight is now over. For others, it is just beginning. May they be so brave.
To our Fallen Heroes, THANK YOU! YOU WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN!
The price of FREEDOM is very high, indeed. But the cost of losing it is far greater.
Celebrate their sacrifice, and remember. – Amber
