We have enjoyed so much freedom for so long
that we are perhaps in danger of forgetting how much blood it cost to establish the Bill of Rights.
|USMC Graduation, November 09|
Today is Veteran's Day and I could attempt to wax eloquent about the importance of patriotism, our troops and our freedoms.
Or I could just get to the point and say what I came to say:
Freedom is never free: someone paid the price. Make sure you tell that someone "Thank you."
(An extra "Thank you" to my son, Corporal Christopher M Samuels, of the USMC. I think it's been a few days since we told you how proud we are of you!)
Don't forget to say "Thank You" to veterans today: There are a million ways to say it - just pick one and do it.
