Today is set aside to remember those, past and present, who have served and/or died for our country.
And by "for our country" we mean for our freedom and rights.
We take a lot for granted in our lives, those who risk everything for strangers, should never be on the "for granted" list.
So please, if on no other day, at least today, take a moment to consider those who have given their all for you. Thank an active or retired service member.
Freedom is not free, it comes at a great price to many.
