Memorial Day 2012: Let Us Remember…

Posted by Larry Doyle on May 27, 2012 11:32 AM |

Is there anybody amongst us who does not believe we live in the greatest nation in the world?

Our nations’ greatness is a product of our freedoms. Let us never take gratuitous liberties with our freedoms. Nor should we ever think that freedom is our God given right as American citizens.

So many of our fellow citizens have made and are making the ultimate sacrifice so we may be free.

I salute the veterans who have made this sacrifice and the current members of our armed forces who put themselves in harm’s way so we here at home may have the freedom to pursue our dreams.

On this note, let us ALWAYS remember…

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,

who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,

who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet,

who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,

who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,

who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician,

Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN,

who salutes the Flag,

It is the veteran,

who serves under the Flag.

May God bless all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. May God also bless their families and loved ones. Please join with me in thanking them all.

God Bless America.

    Larry,

    Right on!

    But the preacher/the Church does preach Christ who brings eternal salvation and freedom to those who repent and believe. That is the ultimate freedom that too many in this country and around the world do not have.

    Mary Schapiro and Gary Gensler on C-Span today before the Senate Banking Committee. It was a yawner. I don’t think they care one bit about the people that were and are being fleeced and neither do the one asking the questions (may I say Schumer??). Only the Repubs asked any “to the point” questions.

    Have a blessed day!

      The GREATEST and most precious freedom of all.

      Thanks for highlighting it.

    Thanks for this posting, Larry. In an era where so few of our elected and appointed officials have served in the military, and many in the administration eschew wearing a flag pin that would identify them as Americans, it is all the more important for citizens to remind those representatives that the people still know who really preserves our way of life.
