America, you are threatening to change some of the very moral and cultural values that so many fought to defend. Somehow, the majority in the attempt to assist the minority have allowed the lines to blur into a confusing mess that makes no sense at all to common sense people. In fact, common sense is so rare that it has even slipped from our highest Courts and Laws. There is a scripture that comes to mind, "Remove not the ancient landmark (boundaries), which thy fathers have set", Proverbs 22:28 (KJV).

Many of us grew up hearing about the American Dream and the American Way of Life. It was a standard around the World for greatness, for prosperity and for Freedom. Generations of young men and women went to serve our Country in our teen years during War and Military Conflicts. Previously, there was a draft that took our sons but since 1972 we have had a volunteer military. Regardless of how we got there, we served to uphold something bigger than ourselves for the good of us all.

I heard someone compare those of us who have served in the military as having given a blank check to our Government, not just for any reason but to defend our American Dream. We willingly fulfilled an obligation to our Country which drew from our life's account. This included time with family or making a family to putting dreams on hold and careers. This check included the long lasting risk to our physical or mental health and our very life. For some, their check was cashed immediately in War or the results of Service to our Country.

Memorial Day is to honor those who's check was cashed in full. Someone has coined the phrase so well, "All gave some but some gave all." I know people mean well when they say, "Thank you" to us Veterans, and I for one appreciate it. Yet, this weekend the sentiment is not toward the living Veteran but those who have given their lives. As we honor those who have given their lives we must not allow a culture of confusion to obliterate their collective sacrifice. These who have died did so for the collective good of us all. Memorial Day is the opportunity to take the time to remember and to pay respect for those who paid that ultimate sacrifice.

Let me encourage you to take a personal moment and say a prayer of thanks for those who paid for you and I to live in this God Blessed United States of America. Refuse to be confused by the attempt to move the sacred boundaries.(hrg)
