NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
America’s younger generation needs to develop an appreciation for their freedoms and why they still exist.
We are able to exercise our constitutional rights and freedoms today because of those who sacrificed their lives in previous wars to insure that America would remain free.
We are free today because of our veterans who fought in various wars for us, many losing their lives in the process. We owe our very existence to what these warriors have done for us.
Do young people have any appreciation in their hearts for what these veterans have done for them?
No one wants to go to war or to die in the process. However, thousands of Americans have done so because they believed in what this country represents and in the Constitution that protects our freedoms and rights.
Each year, we are losing many of these vets because of old age. In order to remind those who remain and to show our nation’s gratitude for their service, war memorials have been built across the country and in Washington, D.C.
Thousands of visitors travel long distances to visit these memorials each year. It is their way to show respect and gratitude for those who gave their all so that the rest of us could remain free and have the opportunity to attempt to achieve the American dream.
Millions of people want to come here because this country has always been the only country that offers this opportunity. What are people willing to do to protect the opportunities this country provides for them? Or do they think they have a God-given right to all of this without any sacrifice?
