I want to say thank you to all the veterans who gave me the freedoms that I enjoy. Without those who died and without those who lived I wouldn't even have the right to speak freely on this blog. They lived and died to give us freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom to assemble, freedom of religion, freedom to a fair trial by our peers, and freedom to vote. We should always use these freedoms to uphold the brave men and women who fight in our stead. Honor veterans every day with your speech. Honor them with what you write for others to see. Honor them by assembling to hold the country together and not dividing it. Honor them by holding them in your prayers. Honor them by respecting and following the law. Honor them by electing officials that will see to their needs with their votes and with our money.
