    This is always a good thing to remember those who served us in times of dire need. I only have this to add: no military ever fought for “freedom.” they fought for each other — and the chance — and it is only a chance — that we would breathe life into the democracy. Freedom is most often fought for in places like the courts of this country, every day. Civil rights, constitutional protections, and advancement of the democracy have all occurred not on the battlefields of the world, but most often in the courts, which I refer to as the churches of democracy. It is what we do with this precious chance that gives meaning to the ultimate sacrifice of these men and women over the centuries this country has existed and before. When we advocate for the rights of those in a minority to be heard, accounted for and not crushed under the weight of far too often a mindless majority, we are breathing life into the democracy and making it work. Honor those who served, while recognizing that it is but a part of the whole.
