Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.
Today we honor those who gave their lives for us. To all those who courageously gave everything and to those who bravely serve today, thank you. Though words don’t seem like nearly enough, thank you.
Ceremonies are important. But our gratitude has to be more than visits to the troops and once a year Memorial Day ceremonies. We honor the dead best by treating the living well. – Jennifer M. Granholm
