MEMORIAL DAY THANKS

American flags in Westerville, Ohio

A special thanks to our brave service people who ensure the freedoms we have enjoyed for centuries.

They are the reason we speak “American”, not some other foreign language.

They are the reason we can speak out against our government when we disagree with their direction.

They are the reason we can choose which religion we wish to believe in.

They are the reason we can dress as we choose, and not hide our faces if we are women.

They are the reason we can choose where to live and where to work.

They are the reason that people from other countries come here and want to become a U.S. citizen.

They are the reason we can casually sit on our decks this weekend,enjoy grilling and sipping a favorite beverage with family and friends while complaining about the government, the economy & Wall St., the oil spill & big corporations, or the people who come here and chose to not do it legally.
