Happy Memorial Day 2009!

Thank you to all the soldiers who have fought for our freedoms. It is because of their bravery that we have the right to live our lives in a country that is free. So many men and women have paid the ultimate price. So many families have stood at the gravesite of their loved ones who have died in battle. Regardless of the war, whether you believe it to be right or wrong, we must stand proud and recognize the soldiers who did what so many of us would not.
They fought.
Some returning with physical and emotional scars that will never go away.
I thank God for his mercies on this land and for the soldiers who have kept the flag of freedom flying, in His name.
Freedom is NOT free.
Freedom is a GIFT in which someone else had to die for us to receive it.
Sound familiar?
GOD BLESS AMERICA
