My beloved readers, your beloved Peasant wishes you
a wonderful, reflective, safe, and enjoyable Memorial
Day. Please remember our brave fellow Americans
who have served in, and given all that they could give
--- their very lives --- in service to our country so
that it could be and remain strong and sovereign.
Freedom isn't free; it comes with one hell of a price tag.
But freedom is no luxury, folks, it is an important necessity.
It is a vital necessity to a free people, for without it there
can be no free people.
For those of you who are the praying sort, offer a prayer
of thanks for those who fought and died to establish and
to preserve our great and wonderful country and its
many freedoms. And we all can at least take a little time over
the course of this weekend to think about those gallant
souls and their actions on our behalf. And as far as those
currently serving in our armed forces, thank them for their
hard work and sacrifice! It may now be a trite little slogan
after having been oft repeated, but it rings with truth:
If you enjoy your freedom, thank a vet!
We'll gather together here after this hallowed day.
God bless you all, and God bless America!
