...why you have freedom.
Today is Memorial Day. A day we remember and honor our U.S. soldiers who perished while serving our country. I was raised in the military from infancy so have a deep patriotism for our country... my country. America is the greatest country in the world. A place where freedom offers opportunity unavailable in other countries. The freedom to sing, worship, be protected, have children, vote, protest, go to college, agree, disagree, live life fully and become all we can. We have this freedom because of our beloved military men and women who serve so valiantly. When one falls, we should all feel the pain and reach out in appreciation to their service. I will never forget how unwelcome and unappreciated protesters made us feel.... so today, instead of exercising your freedom to protest, lift up in prayer our precious men and women in the military and honor those who have fallen to preserve our freedoms.
