Memorial Day Thank You To Commemorate Our Military and A New Liberty

Memorial Day commemorates all military personnel from all battles who fought to keep the U.S. a free nation.

The cause may be summarized in Patrick Henry's famed March 23, 1775 speech to the House of Burgesses (the legislative body of the Virginia colony), which contained the following phrase: "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?...I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"

Whether one agrees or not with all wars fought by the U.S., based on politics and the decisions of those in power, we wish to honor all military personnel who gave their time, their valiant efforts, their limbs, and their life to "give us liberty" and keep us free.

WIthout detracting from honoring our military personnel, we'd like to raise the awareness of another "liberty", another right, a freedom deserved by all people on earth: the freedom and right to breathe clean air, drink clean water, and eat healthy, nutritious food. The founding of Yes It's Organic was based on making one small effort toward these "rights."

There is no doubt that pollution kills. Unfortunately, we sometimes have to fight these more subtle battles both within the U.S. and, due to global trading, around the world. In this case, supporting the growth of Organic practices in growing the crops and processing the fiber, yarn, fabric, and finished goods, is a step toward giving us and other peoples everywhere our liberty.

There is nothing more important to sustain life than the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat.

The Team Members at Yes It's Organic wish to honor our military personnel from all battles. We also wish to honor people like you - our readers, our customers, and our friends - who fight every day to sustain the highest quality for our air, water, and food by supporting Organic food and textiles.
