Memorial Day May 26, 2008

On Memorial Day we honor those who solemnly swore "to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

It is also fitting to consider that the Constitution they have defended and laid down their lives to protect is the source of all the freedoms we enjoy in America, guaranteeing the right of the people to be secure in their persons and property against seizure, a right upon which all the creation of value and wealth and security that we enjoy is founded. America has the oldest existing Constitution in the world, and those of us who enjoy its freedoms are indebted to those who have defended it through the centuries even to the extent of the sacrifice of their own lives, and who continue to do so today.
