Freedom isn't free

Yesterday we visted Arlington Cemetary and we saw row upon row of white headstones. While I have always appreciated our nation, I never understood the true sacrafice so many go through just so I may live my life free and peaceful. Visiting the injured soldiers only reiterated this. I realized our freedom is not free. Doing both helped me gain new perspective I'm sure I'll carry the rest of my life.
