Thank you to our neighbor, Sue, who decorates her home each holiday and season. I know I speak for our neighborhood, when I say we enjoy her amazing decorations which cheer and uplift our spirits. She makes our neighborhood, New Town at St. Charles, better.
And thank you, Sue, for the poppy, too. I wear it proudly. With gratitude for those who sacrificed, so that I can enjoy those freedoms which, I see now more than ever, are so very dear.
Thank you to those who serve, to those who have served, and to those who gave their lives for our country and for our freedoms. We can never repay those sacrifices, but we can take a moment to remember and to honor.
