>I’d like to take a few minute to honor those that have fallen in the line of duty.  Year after year, decade after decade, century after century, countless men and women sacrifice their lives for our country and for peace worldwide.  Their sacrifice means that I can celebrate the freedom to read what I want, practice what I believe and say what I feel about my elected leaders.  Without their courage, I would not be doing what I do.  I thank you.
