Happy Memorial Day!

During this Memorial Day weekend, as with every Memorial Day weekend, I find myself humbled by the incredible people who have filled the ranks of our military. Many of those brave souls have paid the ultimate price for their commitment. That level of dedication is almost incomprehensible, but it is more common than you may think with those who serve. They put on the uniform to protect and secure our freedom, and that freedom comes in many forms.

Because of the founder’s wisdom and the Revolutionary soldiers sacrifice, we have freedom of speech, the freedom to assemble, the freedom to think and the freedom to be right or to be wrong. We have the freedom to love and to be loved, and we have the freedom to hate and to be hated.

We have the freedom to buy property and to sell it. We have the freedom to move from here to there. We have to freedom to choose our careers, our jobs, and the freedom to dream, and to succeed or fail. We have the freedom to pursue our passions and our goals. We have the freedom to worship the God of our choice while others worship the god of their choice. We have the freedom to seek education or to decline the opportunity.

The overwhelming sacrifice of our military has given us a nearly limitless freedom to live the best life possible. And, with that freedom comes responsibility. Our freedoms set us free to be everything we can be, and our personal responsibility restrains us from using that freedom to hinder, harm or injure anyone and everyone. It is my prayer that we use our freedom to it's fullest good potential. Our freedoms should only be restrained by our choices, and our choices should be good and noble for freedom to yield its full harvest in our lives.
As you enjoy your long weekend, remember those who secured it, and say a little prayer for those who are standing in the gap between those who would destroy those rights and those who enjoy those rights.

Morning Mike.

Never a day goes by, that I don't reflect on those who sacrificed their lives by joining the Armed Forces.  They gave so much for us to have the freedom, we hold so dear
