Memorial Day 2013

May 27, 2013

I have always found this to be one of the visceral photos related to memorial day.

Freedom is not free, the price paid for us to live in such a wondrous place as this is borne not simply by those who serve and die for our freedom but by those who they leave behind.

A quick look at the world and at history reassures us that such a heavy price, while costly and dear is indeed worthy of that which is purchased. This amazing land has brought more hope, light, freedom and happiness into this dark sad planet than any other nation in all of human history. And that is only because men and women through the years have stood up and put their life blood between us and evil.

So thank you to all who are now or have once worn the uniform of our nation’s armed forces. You and your brothers in arms fallen afield are not forgotten, the blood price for what we have is remembered.

I have nothing more to offer than my thanks and so I give it;

Thank you.
