I took some time Sunday morning to think about the opportunities that I have in the United States. Many men and women lost their lives defending our way of life and borders and that reality hit home. On this Memorial Day, I am thankful for those that were willing to stand in the way of a bullet, landmine, grenade, etc. for me. Some young man or woman died alone, lying in a field or desert somewhere in this world so that I could make the most of my life and experience true freedom. That makes me sad, but appreciative. Thank you to all that died for my freedom.
