Freedom's Not Free

Today is Memorial Day in the United States and we did a Memorial Day post yesterday.  However, we like the music of The Rivoli Revue and they just sent us a link to their latest video, which  they both wrote and performed.  As anyone who has ever lost a loved one in war can attest, freedom is not free!  So we're going to post their video. We know you will like it because the words are so true.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

And Debbie Lee, a Gold Star mom, has a website, America's Mighty Warriors, which she founded after the death of her son Marc Alan Lee, the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq.  We encourage you to visit the site and look around.
