An inspiring reminder on Veterans Day

November 12, 2012

Today we observe Veterans Day (the official holiday always falls on November 11th).

We remember all those who have gone before us, and those still alive.

We thank and honor them for their service and their sacrifices on behalf of the noble ideal of freedom. An ideal that most people in the world throughout history could only dream about, and one that, unfortunately, is too often taken for granted by those who enjoy it.

We need to always be mindful that freedom isn't free.

President Ronald Reagan was a man who frequently reminded us about the greatness of America and the beauty of freedom and patriotism. Even people who disagreed with him on public policy positions were inspired by his optimism and heartfelt devotion to the greatness of America's ideals.

Thus we deem it fitting to share with you the final six minutes of President Reagan's farewell address in 1989.

Please watch it. You'll be glad you did.
