This Memorial Day, Packernation celebrates the greater Nation that makes the National Football League possible. To all the men and women who have gone before us, stood between the cause of Freedom and those who would threaten it, we honor you today:
As Long as Freedom reigns, you live on in the hearts of those who cherish the inalienable rights that your blood, sweat, and tears provided. Those who remember the cost of freedom…and keep the receipt.
Courage is NOT a gift given, it is NOT found in size, speed, strength or superiority of armament. COURAGE comes when men and women stand against the very thing they are afraid of. It is at the moment we face what we fear, that courage comes. Those who do so are truly courageous, truly brave…true heroes. And no bolt of terror, no slug of slavery, no crooked blade of religious intolerance can EVER stand against freedom as long as we remember the heroes who came before.
