Having just celebrated Veterans Day, a day we honor those who have served our country in battle and times of peace, we want to reiterate the importance of supporting this great nation. Many have given their lives to defend the freedoms that so many of us take for granted. They have sacrificed themselves and the happiness of their friends and family in order to keep us safe within our land. They have voluntarily gone on our behalf and given up the comforts of home so that our nation could continue on as we know it.
We often take their sacrifices for granted, living as if we innately have our rights. We forget that our freedom costs someone else their life. May we continue to honor, not just one day the men and women who serve so that we might live in freedom and peace. Let’s not forget the spouses who raise children alone while their husbands or wives are at war. As the holidays approach, let’s be thankful for the families who spend them without loved ones who are on duty.
Around the world, many others do not have the choices we have here in America. We choose our education, religion and what careers we pursue. We buy and sell at will online or in stores across the globe. We forget that while the world is at our fingertips, many other nations are confined inside their borders simply because they lack the means or opportunity. Many nations solely support themselves on what little means they have.
America however, is a land of opportunity! We have a plethora of choices to choose from. Just take a walk down any American grocery store aisle and see the variety of cereal boxes to choose from! So why purchase goods from other nations – supporting them and their economy at the expense of ours? We can choose to purchase what we want, where to purchase it from, and how much we need – that is our right. But it is also our responsibility to support the American business owners and manufacturers so that our economy continues to grow. Who else around the world cares if America continues to thrive? If we don’t care, no one else will! Products made within our borders stimulate economic opportunities for future generations and it is our responsibility to do so.
At Backyard Buddy, we are committed to buying American made products so we can continue to fuel the economy. We value the quality and excellence required in North American goods, and by using them exclusively within our products and components, we do OUR part to support those who are sacrificing themselves for our great nation. We show them respect as we do our patriotic duties by committing to support the U.S. economically.
Our national anthem ends by stating that our flag waves “O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.” We are grateful for the men and women who bravely serve our county day in and day out to keep this great land free. We are committed to supporting this great nation by manufacturing products made solely within America. Won’t you join us by making purchases that are American made?
