Take a Moment

Tomorrow while you are enjoying family and friends and good eats, take just a moment to remember those who made it possible. Those who loved country and liberty more than life itself and who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we could enjoy the blessings of liberty in this, America, the beautiful.

I didn't expect to feel the reverence and awe that I did when I visited Arlington Cemetary and saw the sea of citizen soldiers who had served our country with honor and sacrificed so much for the liberties I take for granted every day. Thank you to all those who have served and who do still serve.
