Let us remember those of our countrymen
who have given their lives that we might live freely and in peace:
Because of spilled blood and the making of the supreme sacrifice by countless thousands of Tennesseans from the Overmountain Men to those who landed on Omaha and Utah beaches, and those who presently serve in Iraq and Afghanistan, our Legislature is free to have a budget fight. In no small part because of the efforts of these noble souls we are able to enjoy a freely elected government in this State and throughout the United States.
