As we gather with family and friends this Memorial Day, let us take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of this solemn day. Memorial Day is a time to honor and remember the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our great nation. Their courage and dedication have secured the freedoms we hold dear.

This weekend, while we enjoy the beach, barbecues, and parades, let us not forget those who have given their lives for our liberty. Their selfless service is the foundation upon which our country stands, and it is our duty to ensure their legacy lives on.

Under President Trump’s leadership, our country enjoyed a period of peace without new wars. His administration’s focus on strength and diplomacy helped maintain stability and safety for our service members. Unfortunately, today we are witnessing the devastating consequences of Joe Biden’s failed leadership and misguided policies. Under his watch, we face numerous conflicts around the world, jeopardizing the safety and security of our nation. Biden’s weak and ineffective governance has not only emboldened our adversaries but also put our brave service members at greater risk. Additionally, his administration has turned a blind eye to a wave of antisemitism not seen since the 1930s, further dividing our nation and undermining the values we hold dear. It is more important than ever to remember the significance of strong, decisive leadership in maintaining peace and security.

As we approach the 2024 elections, we must prioritize electing Republican leaders who are committed to reversing these dangerous trends. We need a government that will work tirelessly to protect our nation, honor the sacrifices of our troops, and restore stability both at home and abroad. Most importantly, we need a President who will put America first and make our country great again.

Today and in the days to come, I invite you to join me—wherever you may be, whatever you may be doing—to contemplate the cost of our freedom, and to remember, honor, and celebrate the great heroes who laid down their lives so that you and I can remain free. And to those men and women who fought for peace at home and around the globe, thank you for your service.

Let’s also work towards a future where their sacrifices lead to lasting peace and prosperity. Together, we will take our country back and #VoteDeKalbRed. We are all Red, White, and Blue.

God bless you, and God bless the United States of America. Thank you.  With Gratitude on Behalf of the DeKalb Republican Party.

Marci McCarthy, Chairman
DeKalb County Republican Party
