So Many Heroes
This morning we attended the Memorial Day Memorial Service at Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio. Walking amongst the flag-adorned graves, hearing "The Star-Spangled Banner," seeing the flag at half-staff, hearing the 21-gun salute . . . I felt a swell of joy for this dear country where I live in which so many freedoms are preserved. I felt a heavy sorrow that so many men and women have fought and died, given the ultimate sacrifice of their lives - and continue to do so - for the preservation of the freedoms we hold so dear.
They are heroes and I owe them a debt of gratitude. Thank you, Soldiers.
