On this Memorial Day we honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their families, friends, and homes. That sacrifice was given in a faith in the future, that generations to come will enjoy the blessings of liberty and the continued history of their homeland.
For such a selfless act of sacrifice, a simple "thank you" will never be enough. Let us pause today to remember them. But let us also be ever diligent in our defense of what their sacrifice has given us. May we be stewards of those principles. May we never let their sacrifice to be in vain. And may we never forget why we still have such blessings.
So today we honor them with our memories and commit to defend daily that which they died for.
