It is essential that we remember the veterans who fought on our behalf. If we forget them, we deserve the consequences.
While freedom may be an inalienable right under the law in the United States, it must be won and earned daily. Do not take what freedoms you do have for granted as they can disappear as quickly as the Berlin Wall fell down.
Let the government focus on providing services and let the people monitor their own morality—which cannot be legislated. The more laws a society has means that the government trusts the people all that much less. Soldiers did not give their lives or lose their limbs and health so that you and I should squander their legacy and gift.
