Sacrifice is the theme of Memorial Day. The sacrifice of individuals. The sacrifice of families. The sacrifice of communities. The sacrifice of a nation. Memorial Day is a time when America's war dead remind us of the price for freedom. John Quincy Adams once said, "You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you make good use of it."
A few years age, AFA commissioned Christian songwriter/singer Eric Horner to write a moving patriotic song to honor our national motto, "In God We Trust." On this Memorial Day, I hope you will take a moment to watch this very inspiring song, which reflects on those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
May God continue to bless America on behalf of those who gave their lives for her.
Please take time with family and friends over this Memorial Day weekend to reflect on the cost of freedom and our responsibility to defend and promote it.
