Thank You, Veterans

Peace is not the absence of war. Peace is the subjugation of evil. Tyranny, even in the absence of war, is not peace. Few of us in this country have experienced tyranny up to this point, and most of those immigrated here from China, Cuba, Iraq, Iran and other such places where the liberty of its people has not been valued by those in power.

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. Let us never forget the men and women who put themselves in harm's way that we may sleep that peaceable sleep.
