more than a bank holiday or appliance sale
today remember
...the dedication of service members and families...
...the ultimate sacrifices paid...
...anything worthwhile is
worth fighting for...

Very well said ... and a good reminder. Sadly, I think this is one of those hoildays that gets lost in the shuffle. Another "oh ... why aren't we getting mail today? Oh right, Veteran's Day."

Thank you for this post. We have to keep making it a point to teach our neighbors, our children and our communities so the situation of the mistreated Vietnam vets NEVER happens again. We are re-training ourselves to think in more grateful ways and that will take a while.

Thank you for visiting my blog and encouraging me through a difficult time, Erin. I treasure YOU.
