The freedom that we take for granted comes with a high price.

The freedom that we take for granted comes with a high price.The human spirit yearns to wander unfettered through the obstacle course of life. The freedom to determine one’s own destiny is often taken as a given.

But there are those that would suppress liberty and deny the right of self-determination.

And it is for that reason that it is often necessary to defend human rights with more than mere words. As there are those that would forcibly assault freedom, there must also be a willingness to defend it with force.

Memorial Day is the official recognition of the ultimate sacrifice made by the brave men and women that paid for the liberty that we enjoy. Today we honor them in a formal capacity.

But we should also honor them the other 364 days of the year. It is because of their willingness to face the enemy head-on that we have the quality of life that we enjoy today.

The families of the fallen must live with their loss every day. They need our support and condolences on an ongoing basis.

We must never forget. We must never ignore.

And we must NEVER take our freedom for granted.

Such a great reminder for us all.  Nothing comes without a price.  Excellent post.

Richard, it is so easy to forget the price that was paid for our freedom. This is an excellent reminder to us to be daily mindful of the sacrifice others have made on our behalf.

Unfortunately freedom comes at a price. It saddens me that our service men and women are not given the benefits they deserve. Yes, they should be honored everyday of the year.

Sometimes we ignore the fact that NOTHING is for free... it costs Some One Some Thing! Freedom is no different.

Freedom is taken for granted these days.  If we really had some of them taken away..people would go balistic.  Many good men and women died for our freedoms, we should not take them for granted.
