With everything that is happening around the country and the world, these are words that we should take to heart. The value of life feels like it's at an all-time low and it seems like we are losing more and more of our freedom every day.

So if you have a chance on Saturday, December 18th, maybe take some time out of your busy Christmas shopping season and honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
