First and foremost, thank you to all of the brave men and women who have served, or are currently serving to protect this country. It is an honor to be a part of this nation and live among you.
As I take a moment of remembrance today and think of how many great risks and sacrifices were made to build this country, I have many things to be thankful for but being an American I am most proud of. This country was built on the innovations of our Founding Fathers, who believed in a land of liberty, created by the people that belonged to the people. This is a land of opportunity and we can pursue happiness in any way we see fit. We are not perfect by any means, and disagree often we do but what I love so much about this country is that we can still live freely in such diversity.
I wish you all a happy and safe holiday! Please remember to take a moment of silence today in remembrance of those who have courageously stood in great risk to protect our freedom.
What a great day to be an American!
