to all who serve and have served our country.
While I’m saluting those who defend our freedom in foreign wars, I also take a moment to salute those who gave me my freedom and defend it every day here in America: the Founders, who wrote the Constitution;
those who fought over the centuries and are continuing to fight to ensure that racial and religious minorities, women, and LGBT people have full rights of citizenship;
and groups such as American Civil Liberties Union and Southern Poverty Law Center–who do battle in the courts of law and the court of public opinion–so you and I may exercise our rights. THANK YOU. ♥
Happy Memorial Day!
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
