Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
-Ronald Reagan, March 30, 1961
On this Memorial Day, I will be spending my day with my sweet children, and my favorite veteran, my husband. We will be grilling out, probably playing outside and enjoying our extra weekend day with Daddy. We will also, without doubt, say a prayer for those brave men and women that have fought and payed the ultimate price for our freedom, and all the beautiful opportunities we have in our life. We are truly, truly blessed as a people and as a nation, and we owe our soldiers and enormous debt of gratitude.
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Memorial Day, full of lots of fun, family, and good food! But please don’t forget the true meaning for our holiday, to celebrate those who have fought and died for our country. God Bless the fallen, those who have served and continue to serve, and the United States of America!
