Let Freedom Ring

I usually try to keep this completely Information Security related but today is a special day and thus I will detour from my normal format.

231 years ago the men who signed the Declaration of Independence took a stance for what they believed to be right and the best course for the colonies. They risked their lives and homes and many of them paid a very heavy price. Loss of life, family, land, possessions. They were willing to make the sacrifice for freedom.

Since then men and women have served this country in the armed forces and many have lost family, possessions, homes and their lives. They did this not because they were forced into it. They did it not because they wanted to be heroes. They did it because they believe that freedom is worth fighting for and that preserving freedom in America is worth the cost. They did it because they too believe in the same things that fueled the fires of the American Revolution.

I want to take this time to personally thank everyone of them for what they have done. Thank You for the sacrifices that you made for us. Thank You for serving your country.

I also want to lift up in prayer those who are currently serving our country. Especially those who are in Iraq and Afghanistan. These men and women are facing danger every day for us. It doesn't matter what your opinion on the war is these soldiers need our support. Lets give it to them.
