Thankful for America

In my lifetime, there have been different waves of patriotism and waves of de-emphasizing nationalism. Our nation’s foundation of individual freedom allows for both perspectives.

Those who deconstruct America speak with no fear, for their criticism is protected by the Constitution and the sacrifice of multitudes.

I love the United States of America, and I appreciate what a gift it is to me, my family, and my faith. It is a good thing to love our country.

The fallen American soldier remembered

I love the United States of America. American soldiers have given their lives defending principles of freedom that have incalculable benefits. Memorial Day also reminds us that we should avoid war when possible and look to it as an absolute last resort. 

To family members and friends of lost military personnel in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other military actions between these wars, we honor the deceased and recognized your loss.
