MEMORIAL DAY 2016

Establish a perimeter….if you want to sleep safely.…if you want your family….your loved ones….to sleep safely….. Establish a perimeter……..  

A single person…. such as a president or a governor establishes a perimeter to provide safety…security…

That security is provided by armed men and women willing to sacrifice everything….not necessarily for a person….but for a greater purpose.

We the people…of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice and insure domestic tranquility have established such a perimeter……. to provide our country……..our people…….with the safety….the security….within which we may live and prosper….where we may raise our families…where we may break bread in the security and safety provided by those willing to lay their lives upon the altar of freedom….

The men and women of the United States military whom have made the ultimate sacrifice…..the solemn gift of faith and blood…..believe in a greater purpose.

The preservation of freedom…………

If you are willing to fight….you may…or can… provide yourself freedom…..if you are willing to fight…to give this freedom to others…to others you may not even know….to others you may not agree with…to others, unlike yourself….to others that may not support you…………it is an endeavor of the greatest honor……for only those among us with the courage… the character….the commitment……….to the greater purpose of freedom for all men……have been blessed with the true serenity bestowed through selfless sacrifice…….

On this day………..Memorial Day…….we the people…..remember…….we honor……those who have bled for us………..those who have died for us.

We must honor them…….we must always remember them….we must hold their names…their sacrifice…..in high honor.   The gift they have given us is a bond of trust….a trust we must not violate……it is the trust….. that we will not squander or surrender the freedom they have provided us.

Do not become complacent in your freedom….celebrate your freedom…honor those that have preserved it……let us raise our flag to honor them….to remember them….

If you possess the flag of our great country…..raise it…..raise it outside your home.  If you do not have a flag……..get one…….raise it…….raise it high a-top a pole or alongside your front door….keep it there.

Be proud of our military……..be proud of our people…….Be proud to be an American……
