This weekend, between the beers and barbecues and bratwurst, please be sure to take a moment and reflect upon the sacrifice that has made everything possible. Remember those who served and died in an effort to preserve freedom on our own shores and across the world.
And, if you can, please take a moment to leave a comment here. Tell us about your son or daughter, mother or father, brother or sister, grandmother or grandfather, who has served the United States of America in uniform. Help us remember them, even if they’re still with us. If you’ve served–first, thank you!–tell us a little about yourself.
You can post a comment anonymously, if you choose. You can be as specific or ambiguous as you like. Post a name, if you wish. Or simply read the accounts of those who have served.
In the meantime, please take a look at Rick Saunders’ piece below. Look closely at the photos. And, if you have a few moments, listen to THIS AUDIO ESSAY (requires Windows Media Player, and is worth it) from conservative radio broadcaster Glenn Beck. I heard it yesterday myself, and was moved to tears.
Regardless of what you do this weekend, please remember those who have done so very much for each and every one of us.
