On Memorial Day

Today is the day our nation has set aside to remember our fallen soldiers.  The many brave men and women who gave their lives as they fought to protect our freedoms. We owe them a great debt of gratitude.

Too many times, people take for granted the freedoms our nation affords its citizens.  We are free to speak our minds.  We are free to take a stand against our elected leaders. We are free to live where we like. We are free to go to school. We are free to worship where we want. We are free to worship in a way that is meaningful to us. We are free to work in jobs we choose. We are free to bear arms. We are free to not bear arms. We are free to wear clothes we like. We are free to eat what we want. We are free to protest the injustices we see around us. We are free to drive cars if we want. We are free to choose who we love. We are free….every last man woman and child. We are free. And we have these and many more freedoms because many brave men and women fought and lost their lives protecting our freedom.

On this Memorial Day, I encourage you to stop for a moment and say thank you and a prayer for all the freedoms you have.  They did not come cheap.

Peace,

Beth
