Points to Ponder
We flip a light switch and the lights come on; we drive to the gas station and there is gas and we can afford it; we cross a border from one state to the next, and we show no identification card or passport; we turn on the radio or the television and can freely and immediately access hundreds of channels of broad-ranging, multi-dimensional information, commentary, and music; we can publicly disagree with our leaders; we can worship where and when the Spirit so moves us; and we can choose our friends from among a myriad of cultures, faiths, creeds, and skin colors.
We can do all these things and so much more because your grandparents, your parents, your brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and friends in uniform made a commitment to stand up for what is right, what is decent, and what is good about America.
