Memorial Day will look different for many Americans this year. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, weekend excursions and large gatherings of family and friends may not be possible for those in much of the country.
But during trying times, we are reminded of how priceless freedom is, and how delicate its preservation. And on Memorial Day, we are reminded of the sober reality of its cost. This Memorial Day, the absence of some traditions will not diminish the gratitude we hold for those who paid the ultimate price defending it.
As we work to advance the principles of liberty and celebrate its many blessings, we do so with grateful hearts for the selfless few who gave their lives to advance its cause.
Please join us in remembering our nation’s fallen heroes.
