What It Cost

While in Arlington National Cemetery last year, I captured the above sobering sight. It reminded me again that freedom is never free.

This small monument appears in a park in Beaumont, Texas.

Our ultimate freedom required the ultimate sacrifice.
This weekend, I'm thinking of those who put it all on the line, so I could live free.
