Happy Memorial Day.
The flag is only a symbol, but our lives, consciously or not, are frequently intertwined with symbolism. Over the more than two centuries that constitute the lifetime of our nation, many courageous Americans have given of themselves, often given all, to defend and preserve the freedom which this symbol represents. Please take a moment to remember their sacrifices and ponder what it is that they fought and died for. Cherish our freedom and liberty, and let no politician subvert them in the name of security.
