In his 1967 Inaugural Address, then California Governor Ronald Reagan spoke about his vision for democracy. “Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction.
This year’s Memorial Day will be special for many Americans as our nation begins to return to normal, with many joining in-person gatherings with family and friends for the first time in over a year.

If you have yet to hear the story of Sara Kruzan, this is your sign to look her up. Sara has a harrowing story with a bittersweet ending.

She was then sentenced as an adult to life in prison without parole.
