Today is Memorial Day, a great day to think not about ourselves, but about the Freedom that we enjoy. It's great luck to be an American- you have the right and opportunity to choose your destiny here. Not so in all parts of the world. The reason we have this right is because we have defended the Constitution and our Country vigorously since the founding days.
The weight of defending democracy falls squarely on the shoulders of our Soldiers. Peace is achieved through the wars they they've fought and ultimately, many have given their lives to the cause.
While we're enjoying our barbecues and time with family and friends, think about our Soldiers, living and deceased, and thank them.
