Thank you Veterans.. this is for you (salutes)

In a difficult and dangerous world, the American dream is alive and well. America remains a land of freedom, prosperity, and opportunity. It is a place where dreams can still come true for those who are willing to work hard and smart. It is still the world's great superpower, the worlds, great economic engine, and the world's great melting pot.

We Americans are blessed beyond measure. Of course, our nation is not perfect, but it remains the least imperfect nation on earth. And, as grateful citizens, we must do our part to protect America and preserve her liberties just as surely as we work tho create better lives for ourselves and for our families.

The future of America depends upon those who serve and protect her; because of these courageous men and women, we Americans can dream... and we do.

Thank you to all of the women and men who server our country with honor. Without you we would not have all of the freedoms that we enjoy. I send out this little verse to you:

I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the alter of Freedom.

Abraham Lincoln
