Happy Memorial Day! I wish you and yours the best of holidays! I am so grateful for the sacrifices our brave men and women in uniform make so we can be free.
"You see, boys forget what their country means by just reading The Land of the Free in history books. Then they get to be men they forget even more. Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't, I can, and my children will. Boys ought to grow up remembering that."
-Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
He couldn't have said it better. Freedom and the rights we have as Americans are not to be taken lightly. Down through the ages, men and women fought and died for the things we have today.
One of my favorite movie conversations ever goes like this:
we have until we've lost it.
Not to take away from the meaning of today, but I am doing a Kindle Countdown for both Remembering the Alamo and God of Her Fathers in honor of Memorial Day. Get them for $.99 today and at a discounted price until Friday!
Happy Memorial Day!
