Memorial Day reminds me of how much I appreciate living in a free country. It reminds me of how grateful I am to the men and women who serve or have served in the United States military. Without their sacrifices, my family and I would probably not enjoy the freedom to live and worship the way that we do. I appreciate too, those who've lost their lives in times of war and peace, and offer my sympathy and gratitude to the families and friends that they've left behind.
To all who serve, have served, and plan to serve in the future - you have my heartfelt thanks and prayers. Happy Memorial Day.
