On this Memorial Day I want to ask everyone to show their American Spirit. I have heard different opinions about how patriotism isn’t as strong as it once was.
My own children were taught to think that the United States of America is a bully, going around the world taking over and getting involved in everyone’s business. They weren’t taught the reason why.
What is the American Spirit?
Simply put: to be free
Many people around the world would love to be free of oppressive governments and dictators. Over the past 240 years we have developed a great military with which to defend ourselves and help those who seek freedom.
But freedom comes at a price. Brave men and women have paid that price with their lives.
As we remember and honor those who have fallen and lost their lives serving the USA, please pay particular attention to the importance of not letting that fade from your memory.
How do you show your American Spirit?
What are the symbols of the American Spirit of Freedom? There are many, and can be incorporated into any fashion:
The colors red, white and blue
Display the flag
The Liberty Bell
On this Memorial Day I will show my spirit and be somber, in honor of those we lost and in contemplation of the loss of more lives defending our flag and our right to be free people.
Whether you lean to the left, lean to the right or just stand straight, please remember that brave soldiers lost their lives so that you could stand wherever you want.
Make an extra effort to be proud of our country.
Pay respect to the souls of brave men and women who died protecting our flag, our country and our freedom.
