Memorial Day Message

Below is a heartwarming message received this week from a donor to the Making History Project. This message is so perfectly timed and I need not say anything else:

I’m 82. I remember the war. This donation isn’t much, but it is from my heart. To the veterans—Thank you for a good life. Thank you for your bravery and sufferings. May God bless you and your family for all you’ve done for America but thank you the most that I have had the opportunity to live free. Thank you. I love you.
