Happy Memorial Day

I hope that we Americans have spent, at least some time today, reflecting on the huge sacrifices that have bee made from 1776 to the present- to ensure that we can have and enjoy the freedoms that we have as Americans. How do you show your appreciation for the ultimate sacrifice that a fallen son or daughter has made to guarantee your freedom to his or her lost mother? Father? Brother? Sister?

The Founding Fathers were right: Freedom isn't free. It is paid for in blood and honor and sometimes the ultimate sacrifice: the giving of one's life for his or her country and it's citizens.

Thank God for the countless men and women in our country's history that loved freedom enough that they were willing to lay their lives down for it.

Far left loons like: Move, ACLU, Code Pink, Cindy Sheehan owe their freedom to spew their anti-American screeds to those men and women in our past and present who died to give them their freedom of speech along with the rest of their freedoms.

I recognize my debt to these military heroes in our past and today for my freedoms and the awesome priviledge to be able to call myself an American.

God bless America's fallen heroes of freedom. Without them, the amazingly brilliant Democratic Republic that our Founding Fathers gave to us would have evaporated before it even got started or wouldn't have lasted as long as it has.
