"They who give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. "
Independence is like electricity. We take it for granted unless something happens to it. Today is a day to take remembrance of those who died who our freedoms and those serving us across the globe. Not in the name of democracy, but in the name of mankind. We are allowed more freedoms than any place on earth, yet often disregard them until faced with adversity. May peace be the common bond to help create a more democratic world for all. Give thanks and let freedom ring!
