Remember who made sacrifices

Sometime back, this article was sent to me by an unknown author. I thought this message would be appropriate on Memorial Day:

“It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.”

“It is the solder, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.”

“It is the solder, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to demonstrate.”

“It is the solder who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag,who allows the protester to burn the flag.”
