It is good to have a day to stop and remember. We are so busy and life is often hectic. We take so much for granted. In this country, we have so much. We have virtually unlimited freedom to believe, to think, to speak our mind. Facebook and blogs like this are a living testament to our ability to say anything at anytime. It doesn't mean we have the right to be heard, or that what we say will be met with universal acceptance - but we can say it!Today, I am especially thankful for the men and women who stood up for our freedom. They sacrificed everything for people they knew and would never know. They fought and died far from home, compelled by the belief that what they were engaged in was right and true, and for the benefit of the greater good.
