It’s Memorial Day weekend! Time for barbecues, vacations, and pools opening for the summer. I hope you enjoy them, and have a safe holiday, but never forget why we have these opportunities that many around the world, don’t.
Our nation has endured wars against ourselves and some of the fiercest militaries in world history. Men and women fell on the battlefield to defend our freedoms, and pass them on to future generations. That is the definition of courage and bravery in my eyes. So for all those who served or have lost someone who did, this weekend is for you. It is because of you that we can be what we want to be. That we have opportunities that can’t be found on half of our planet. That we have the right to choose a side. So let’s come together and defend it. Let’s remember that America is not about party. It’s one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
In a time when it feels like we are more divided then ever, let’s take these few days to remember that above anything else we are Americans. And Americans stand together through thick or thin. Against the fiercest militaries in history, and time and time again we prevailed by standing together. Marching side by side to make our country the best it can be and stand the test of time.
Happy Memorial Day America. Let us focus on those who stood shoulder to shoulder from all races and religions to defend our freedoms.
