“True patriotism springs from a belief in the dignity of the individual, freedom and equality not only for Americans but for all people on earth, universal brotherhood and good will, and a constant and earnest striving toward the principles and ideals on which this country was founded.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.
As we prepare to reflect on what our service men and women in the Armed Forces have done for the freedom of our country, it is time we salute them with a thank you and remain supportive of all the work that has been accomplished in order to keep us free. We have to look at the sacrifice that these men and women have taken, along with their families, and encourage them to continue, to not give up on their dreams nor lose sight of who they are. They will face many challenges on a daily basis… I leave you with this:
He/she who holds up the ideal that whoever desires to become great among you let him/her be your servant. Strong leaders don’t have to burn down the town and trample the citizens to display their leadership potential.
