Very thoughtful & patriotic, nice touch.

...as we should also remember the Gold Star families, as they have to live with their loss(es) everyday...

I just put my flag out. Made me think of all the great guys that killed for some stupid political reason. One of those guys could have cured cancer, or a million other things positive. Just so much wasted talent. I hear the thought that they died to protect our freedom. It’s sickening when I think about it. I always thought if I’d have got drafted I would have been killed within five minutes of being in combat. Missed it by a couple of years. I almost died of cancer two years ago, and man am I glad I am alive today. A moment of silence here. Thanks for the post.
