Today isn’t a jingoistic holiday about glorifying war. It is about honoring those brave men and women who died serving our country. They didn’t die to make America great, they died to make and keep America free.
Freedom isn’t a gift. It has to be earned. And the price is always paid in blood.
Those of us who are enjoying freedom owe a debt of gratitude to the people who bought it for us.
Every time you stand for the National Anthem you are thanking them.
