Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. BEN FRANKLIN, Entrepreneur, Innovator & StatesmanToday is Memorial Day in the USA.
It's a time to recognize our military forces and remember those to whom we owe so much.
Many, both known and unknown, have sacrificed not just their safety but their lives in defense of this country and that elusive but essential principle, liberty.
To those who are serving or have served, thank you for the priceless gift of freedom.
