Memorial Day 2012

Memorial Day 2012

American Flag

Another May and another Memorial Day here in the U.S.

Amidst the barbecues, the social gatherings, and other events of the day, it’s important to take a moment to reflect on our American freedoms.

Every day, thousands of brave men and women put their lives on the line in an effort to promote and protect the freedoms we Americans enjoy.

Whether you agree or disagree with the political motives, they also work tirelessly in distant lands to strengthen our resolve and defend our allies. It’s important to remember all of those who not only are currently serving in the armed forces, but those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit. – Ronald Reagan

I urge  you to take a quiet moment today and reflect on the service of those who have perished while serving our nation.

To all of those members of our armed forces, thank you for all you’ve done. We’ll never forget the service you’ve provided nor the sacrifices you’ve made.
