Freedom comes at a cost

Freedom does not come cheap. Memorial Day is a day of gratitude to be grateful to all who have served and the veterans who have passed away to secure our liberties.

Memorial Day is a day to remember those who died fighting for our country, a sad time for families who have lost someone.

To many families, it will be a day of prayer, a day to lay out wreaths, a day to honor those who served, a day ...for those who deserve to be thanked and remembered.

Memorial Day is a day Americans honor those who risked their lives to serve our country and protect our Nation, a day set aside in respect for all who participated or have participated in the military.

Our greatest national debt is a debt we owe to those citizens who volunteered to serve, a debt that can never be repaid, but it can be honored.

We all celebrate Memorial Day in their Honor. We are able to celebrate this day in peace, with our families because of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Take a little time during the holiday weekend to thank those gave their all, allowing us the good fortune to celebrate and enjoy the holiday with our families.

To those families who have current members serving overseas, may they return home safe.

I wish you all a safe holiday.
