Every year on Memorial Day we come together to remember those who have fallen in defense of freedom.   I was honored this year to take part in two local Memorial Day events.

I was invited to speak at a ceremony at Veterans Park in Boca Raton.  This beautiful remembrance has been organized by Ralph Shear and members of the Veterans Coaltion of South Florida for nearly 20 years.  It was especially wonderful to see so many children participating in the ceremony.

I was also delighted to join Representative Bob Shelley, Mayor Lamar Fisher and members of the Pompano Beach City Commission for their Memorial Day festivities.

As a daughter of a veteran, it is important for me to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom as well as continue to fight for our current service members.  We must never forget the courage of our men and women in uniform.  Our veterans dserve our gratitude and the utmost respect every day.  I will always fight to make sure that our veterans are recognized and that their issues are heard.
