Today is Memorial Day, a day where we all take the time to honor those brave men and women who fought and died defending our liberties. Today is a day for all of us democrats, republicans, “radical” progressives, and right wing “extremists” to take some time, pause a moment and give thanks for those brave souls who gave up everything so that we can argue until our fingers fall off about how to best preserve the greatest nation in the world for posterity. Countless men and women gave up throwing the baseball with their son, grilling out with their fathers, waving goodbye to their kids on their first day of school. They gave up everything they held dear to protect those things for us. Today Honor those who gave their lives so that we may live in a free nation.
