Our nation's freedom, and our own, was hard won. With gratitude, we acknowledge the courage of those who make this day possible:
To the independent thinkers, leaders and warriors who fought for liberty and freedom to make our country great!
To our parents, teachers, mentors, officers, leaders and friends who have helped us stand strong on our own!
To ourselves, for the struggles we've faced to set ourselves free.
This freedom we take for granted is the greatest gift ever.
Now, what is the best we can do with it going forward?
