Florida Governor Ron DeSantis brought some truth and light to a really dark time in America with a Memorial Day speech that was meant to encourage and empower.
DeSantis stressed the importance of remembering why we celebrate Memorial Day.
DeSantis reflected on the truth that we “would not be the country that we are without those patriots sacrificing their lives so that we could pursue happiness.”
“I want to wish everybody a happy Memorial Day weekend, and I hope you enjoy yourselves,” DeSantis said.
DeSantis, who served in the U.S. Navy, delivered this message via social media.
“And as you’re doing that, I hope that you take some time to reflect on the reason that we have Memorial Day,” DeSantis continued.
“From the founding of our country all the way to the present, we’ve had people that have been willing to serve this country in uniform and give the last full measure of devotion so that we could be a free society,” he said.
“We would not be the country that we are without those patriots sacrificing their lives so that we could pursue happiness,” he added. “God bless their memory and God bless all of you.”
Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to those who have served our country in uniform and gave their last full measure of devotion to our nation.
