We Will Never Forget

Monday, May 28

The Greatest Generation: World War ll veterans, our own soldiers and brave Allies, you quite literally saved the world.  You stood strong against tyranny and unspeakable evil, you suffered without complaint, for the sake of humanity and for America, our beloved Home.  You were determined to do what was right, no matter how hard it was, and we all owe so much to you.  How could “thank you” ever be enough, in the face of such courage and sacrifice?  Truly, you gave it all: blood, sweat, toil and tears.  THANK YOU.
The Viet Nam veterans everywhere: I love my country, but it hurts my heart to recall how so many of you were treated.  You served bravely and in good faith, and I am profoundly grateful to you, as are many, many other Americans.  You have a very important, even vital lesson to teach: no matter what we may think of any given military conflict, we owe our support to the men and women who protect our right to speak out on the smallest issue or the largest.  THANK YOU.
All who have served, who have fallen or been injured, from the beginning of this Amazing Experiment we call America, in all conflicts and emergencies, local and national, to this very moment and far beyond, into a complicated, challenging and exciting future.  You are all heroes and heroines, and your legacy is freedom.  THANK YOU.
All those who perished in the attacks on September 1, 2001, to all who gave their lives trying to help, I have this to say.  WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
And so, in the words of Winston Churchill, “Let us go forward, together.”
