America is an amazing place. It is a beacon of hope for the oppressed and tortured. It exists because of bold, brave souls, those who value liberty more than life itself. I am a proud of my country where I, as a woman, can learn, pray, speak, dream, succeed, serve, protect myself and share these amazing rights with my own daughters.
From those first patriots fighting against impossible odds to the dear friends and family we have lost and every member of our Armed Forces in between, today you are remembered. Today you are celebrated. I thank you every day, in everything I do as I live, love and believe in freedom. Thank you.
