"Americans cherish freedom, but all too often we do not reflect how this came to be.
We honor those brave men and women in uniform who have given their lives in our defense
through our 238-year history as a nation. We should also remember those who risked all
to gain so many other freedoms that have become part of our Constitution. We also revere those
who fought for our right to speak openly, to assemble without fear, to end slavery, to have
a right to vote, for the right to personal privacy, and so many other privileges that we enjoy
today in the 'home of the free'."
The weather held and the parade began at 11am sharp on Saturday, March 7, 2015!
And here's proof:
