With a grateful heart, I thank all our military today, past and present, for their service to this great country.
For all the sacrifices, for all the time away from family....
For putting your life on the line for our freedoms,
and for giving of yourself, unselfishly, for a coutry you love and the foundation on which is was built.
May we never forget all that have served and died for us and for our freedoms.
The freedom to live our lives how we want
The freedom to worship without hiding
The freedom to succeed in anything we put our minds to
The freedom to vote
The freedom to speak our minds without fear
The freedom to have as many children as we want
The freedom to adopt from a country that doesn't share that luxury
And the freedom to know that we can sleep in peace at night.
