“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13
The freedoms we enjoy, and oftentimes take for granted each and every day, came with a tremendous sacrifice. The freedom to worship, the freedom of faith, the freedom of liberty, life, and the pursuit of happiness are what make America great. There is no other nation in the world like the USA.
Today my wish is that we all remember and honor all of the brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we could have our freedom. We must never take for granted the sacrifice they made for us, and for future generations.
President Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
God bless our troops, God bless our leaders, God bless our families, and may God bless the United States of America.
