Remember the Past & Build Your Future

To celebrate the lives of veterans, not only is it necessary to participate in events such as the wreath laying ceremony, it’s important to simply live. The brave men and women who fought for our country and died in the process didn’t sacrifice their lives for no reason.

To hope.

To dream.

To believe.

To cherish.

To love.

To be free.

These are the ideals that veterans believed in, what they fought for. It’s important to celebrate their lives, but it’s also essential that we live our lives because they didn’t get to. We honor those who made our country free by enjoying our freedoms: exercising our right to vote, participating in peaceful protests, maintaining our free speech, and more.

The next time your son or daughter asks for you to play a game with them or when your spouse wants to go out to eat somewhere special, say yes. We only get one life. It’s imperative that we make the most of it. This is how you show patriotism, how you show love. Honor the fallen lives and never forget the ideals they fought for.
