This weekend our country joins together to remember those who gave their lives to allow all of us to live in freedom. Have you ever considered that the life-change we are free to pursue is ours because others stood in the gap to protect the American dream? Consider these quotes that speak to the price of freedom.
“There is nothing nobler than risking your life for your country.”Nick Lampson
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”– Joseph Campbell
“You will never do anything in this world without courage.”– Aristotle
“A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.”– Bob Dylan
“Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility.”– Eleanor Roosevelt
“Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.”– Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay.”– Barack Obama
As you celebrate with friends and family this Memorial Day weekend, let’s all take a moment to remember the sacrifices that fuel our strength.
