Salutations to the many brave men and women who serve this great country by protecting it's freedom and rights. Many have sacrificed their own lives in doing so. Without the strength of the various branches of the armed forces, we, as citizens, would not have the ability to live freely.
With this protection, we are able to move around and perform our daily activities without fear. And, we are able to offer our opinions, through our voices, or on media, without fear of reprisal. We are able to make choices about how we wish to live our lives, which activities we want to perform, and which groups we want to align with and share similar viewpoints, all due to our precious freedom. People in other parts of the world are not so fortunate - they are not able to live the way they want to, nor are they able to express their own opinions without facing serious consequences.
Take a moment to reflect on the value of the freedom offered in the greatest nation in the world, and also, on the courage, valor, and perseverance, of those who have served, and continue to serve, to protect the freedom of the United States.
