Testerman For Governor - Remember the Fallen from a Military Mom's Perspective

"Live Free or Die."  This significant historic phrase that is our state motto explains why we remember the Fallen on Memorial Day.
Inside the house you hear a car door close.  Through the window you see three men dressed in military uniform approaching your front door.  

As a military wife and mother, this was the scenario I never wanted to face.  Even today as I write this, tears well in my eyes and a knot forms in my throat at the very thought.  Yet through the years all across America, thousands of mothers, fathers, husbands and wives have experienced this nightmare.    Their military family member has given his or her life for fellow Americans.  THEY understand freedom is not free!

Since the founding of this nation people have given their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor both in war and peace so that you and I can remain free. 
We, as citizens of New Hampshire, are on the "front lines" in a culture war, fighting for prosperity and honorable principles and values we hold dear.

Thomas Jefferson once said, "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."
Do you still believe in the New Hampshire motto? If so, let's all ask ourselves what we can do to preserve our freedoms here at home. If we don't fight for them, they will be taken away from us.

Take action:

First and foremost, take time this weekend to honor and remember those who have given their all or had their lives altered by injuries so that you and I can be free. 

Then get involved.  Help support the men and women who are fighting for your freedoms.  This means not only those in uniform but those seeking and serving in public office.

Remember freedom is not free.  Will you pledge to give your life, your fortunes and your sacred honor as those who have gone before us?

God bless you this Memorial Day and God bless America,
