My Family Lives Memorial Day Everyday
David Jeffers
May 26, 2014
My family lives Memorial Day everyday. Having lost my only son Sergeant Eddie Jeffers on September 19, 2007 in Taqqadam, Iraq, we understand what President Abraham Lincoln meant by giving "the last full measure of devotion."

Sending our men and women into battle is one of the gravest decisions a president can make. A nation that loses the precious blood of our children owes a debt of gratitude that can never be fully paid.

However, we can honor the sacrifice of our fallen heroes by not allowing their deaths be for naught. We do so by protecting liberty wherever it is in danger.

Some will say the United States cannot be the world's policeman. I agree, but we must be liberty's watchman. Our nation is great because our Founders understand what liberty is and how it is executed and protected. We are threatened as a nation whenever and wherever liberty is under siege. Tyranny is an uncontrollable societal weed and left alone it chokes off anything resembling freedom.

Jesus taught:

."..to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of they will ask the more."

Much as been given to the United States of America and much is required of us as a nation. We cannot sit back and watch another nation be attacked by liberty's enemies from within and/or without and believe it will not affect our nation either directly or indirectly.

I do not take lightly sending our young men and women to foreign shores to defend what may seem a land not related to our best interests. However, it is our responsibility nevertheless.

That being said, let us fight to win and let us never forget the price we pay.
