In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This weekend we honor those fallen in defense of our nation’s freedom. We live under that banner of sacrifice. In my opinion one day is not enough to keep their service in the forefront of our minds. Every breath we take, every laugh we enjoy, every moment of contentment we experience is a debt we owe to the men and women of our Armed Services.
Regardless of race, creed or political affiliation, it is our duty as citizens of this country to express our gratitude to those who serve and to live our lives in a manner that honors the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
