Sacrifice, Freedom and Independence

Independence day.  The day that we became a nation all those years ago.  We celebrate.  We throw parties.  We shoot off fireworks into the air.  We fly Ole Glory with pride.  And we remember all those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms that we share now. 

There is a popular saying that goes “Freedom is not free.” 

Tonight, remember that.  Remember the thousands of lives that were given over to the ideals of freedom.  Remember the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  The men and women who continue to serve, protecting our freedoms. 

We are a nation that was built by the blood of the free.  Our independence has been protected throughout the ages by the brave men and women who serve our nation, here and abroad.  Let us continue to honor them. 

God Bless and PEACE
