As we all know, Freedom is not Free.  It comes with a price tag.  In our countries history, many brave individuals on and off the battlefield have paid the tab for us to enjoy our Freedoms.  My encouragement for all of this week is to pause and think about all the freedoms that we have in our country.  Hopefully, a sense of gratitude will stir up in each of us.
