Freedom is not Free

Happy Fourth of July, all you fellow Americans!
I want you to think about something with me. Do you have freedom? Do you OWN it? What is freedom to you?
Is it doing what you want? How many times a day do you do that? In some ways we do anything we want all the time. On the other hand, I want to fly to Australia and scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef. Have I booked my flight? Are you kidding!?! That takes $$, well more like $$$$$$$$ if you use the cost scale the restaurants use, where 1$ is a cheap burger place and $$$$$ is a meal at a 5 Star Hotel.
Freedom is not free.So, this is America. The United States of America - how the heck can we be free to do what we want when we are broke?
Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and members of the Coast Guard give up a lot of freedoms to serve in the Armed Forces. Why? Because they understand that freedom involves a lot more than doing what we want. Freedom is a core value. What will you do to secure your own freedom?
And THANKS to all those who serve our country and their fellow citizens daily. From the elementary school serving line in the cafeteria to the President of the United States, to all of us in one way our another, we are here to serve.
What do you think?
It's an honor to have you visit my blog!
