We often forget, or never were taught, that our freedom is not free. It was purchased with the blood of thousands upon thousand of our honored dead.
This Memorial Day we honor the fallen, men without whose sacrifice we might never have been born as a nation. As well, we honor the men, and, now, women, who have given their all that we might remain free; that we might remind all the world that our ways of freedom are far better than the alternative of tyranny.
