Each of us has something to offer our country. What we remember on Memorial Day are the sacrifices of our brothers and sisters.
This sacrifice means everything to protecting our freedom, our liberty, and our capacity to be of service to our country and each other.
This sacrifice was given so that we can offer something significant and worthwhile to our community.
So few on earth have what our democracy offers. And, fewer seem to relish the opportunities given from the sacrifices of these brave troops because of perceived differences.
Every single day I remember what has been lost. This is the motivation that leads me to do something more with what has been given by the sacrifices of others.
That is what Memorial Day means to me. It is with me every day.
