Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) shared a special Memorial Day message, dedicated to patriots who sacrificed their lives so everyday Americans could pursue happiness. DeSantis, who served in the U.S. Navy himself, encouraged a moment of reflection.
“I want to wish everybody a happy Memorial Day weekend, and I hope you enjoy yourselves. And as you’re doing that, I hope that you take some time to reflect on the reason that we have Memorial Day,” he 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, recognizing those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.
“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.”
