I voted last week.
I drive a nice truck.
I went on vacation with my family last summer.
I went for a walk on the beach with my wife.
I can go wherever I want and whenever I feel like it.
I have access to great medical care.
My family is safe at night when we sleep.
I didn’t do anything to make any of this happen. It was given to me for free.
And even though it didn’t cost me anything personally, it was not free; it came at a cost.
An enormous cost to so many before us and to so many right now – this very moment.
So when you go for a walk with your wife, or play in your yard with your kids, remember something.
Freedom isn’t free.
Respect. Be grateful.
Our Veterans deserve at least that.
