Like your Freedom? You owe 60 seconds to thank a soldier!


Sixty seconds, that is all that is asked of each and every American.

Just 60 little seconds. Hard to believe isn't it?

60 little seconds of silence to say thanks
 for helping to keep us safe while we slept soundly in our beds at night 
and for rights we take for granted each and every day.

Please stop at 3:00 p.m. on Memorial Day 


They died for it..
It's the least you can do.

60 little seconds of silence.
(without sending or receiving a text message either)

I agree. That's why we celebrate Memorial Day, to honor those who fought and died for our country. It seems to get forgotten with all the bbqs and parties.
