As you start your Memorial Day weekend, take a moment, and remember the reason for the holiday. Think for a moment, about those who gave up their lives for our freedom. Some of us are Republicans, some Democrats, some Libertarian, but we are almost all Americans. Many brave men and women have given their lives for us to be able to disagree and to vote for representatives of our choosing. They died for our rights and our freedoms. Take a moment, remember them, and their sacrifice, for they are the reason for this holiday. Don't wish me a "Happy Memorial Day", for I will be remembering those who died for my freedom.
