We are blessed to live in a country where we are free to pursue our dreams, worship without fear of persecution and choose our leaders in fair and democratic elections. Today we honor those who have served to defend these liberties.
The legislature is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all Ohioans, which is why I readily co-sponsored Senate Bill 7 last month when it passed the Ohio Senate. This bill, sponsored by my colleague Senator Gayle Manning (R-North Ridgeville) prohibits the sale of pure caffeine products.
Whether you spend the day helping veterans, attending a local parade or ceremony, or decorating the grave of a fallen hero, I encourage you to honor the memory of those who died protecting our freedoms.
The Ohioans we honored this week—fathers, sons, brothers and friends—represent many before them. They came to serve with a diverse range of experiences and passions but a shared love of country and desire to rescue the oppressed. They came from different backgrounds, but their actions proved that they belonged to the same sacred fellowship of Ohioans who answered their nation's call to arms.
