I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Those words are all you need to know, to remember, and to uphold in order to honor the memory of those who gave their lives to protect our freedom. That is the pledge they took when they promised their lives for the defense of this nation. Remember and celebrate their lives this and every Memorial Day.
If you don’t stand and salute, and maybe cry a little, after hearing Whitney Houston honor our nation, I worry you just don’t understand this great nation of ours.
Please enjoy Memorial Day, it’s what they died for. Just take a moment, thank them for their sacrifice, and by all means tip one back for them. You know wherever our boys and girls are they are having a cold one.
God bless America!
