The dangerous world we are looking at today serves as an appropriate backdrop for our expression of gratitude for those who have died in the service of our nation.
From the time of our nation’s founding to today, well over 1.2 million Americans have paid the ultimate price in the service of our country.
Today is a day for us to say, “thank you.” It is also a day for us to dedicate ourselves.
In 1863 Abraham Lincoln called our country an “unfinished work.” And, in many respects, we remain an unfinished work.
Our commitment—the commitment of “the living”—to the values and freedoms our honored veterans fought for makes clear that they did not die in vain.
To those who have served or are serving today: A grateful nation says, “thank you.”
To those listening who have a loved one who died for this great cause: A special thanks to you—and a heartfelt civilian salute from me (and all my friends here at the Salem Media Group).
Happy Memorial Day.
