the enemies of freedom who will always be amongst us and will always be a threat to liberty. And God willing, America will always be there to vanquish freedom’s adversaries.

“Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have. It is a weapon that we as Americans do have. Let that be understood by those who practice terrorism and prey upon their neighbors.”  –  Ronald Reagan, First Inaugural Address, 1981

Wishing you all a tranquil, thoughtful Memorial Day.
