Tears fill my eyes each and every time I hear the song, “God Bless the U.S.A.”
“And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free. And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.”
— Lee Greenwood (1943 – )
American singer and songwriter
On Memorial Day, especially, we pause to remember and honor all military personnel who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Each one was first someone’s son or daughter, parent, sibling, neighbor, spouse, or friend. I give thanks that such strength exists.
