I hope everyone takes at least a moment to stop and thank a veteran for their service today. We enjoy a lot of freedoms in this country and they are all thanks to the men and women who were and are willing to sacrifice for all of us. My Grandpa was in the Army, as was my Dad. Obviously Ken is still active Navy. Some days I feel a little guilty that I opted to go to regular University instead of a Service Academy (as I at one time considered doing). But I would likely have gone to the Air Force Academy and I don't think Ken could ever have forgiven me for that so maybe it's for the best ;)
If you enjoy your rights of
Freedom of Religion (including the freedom to choose no religion)
Freedom of Speech
Freedom of the Press
Right to Bear Arms
The right to have a drink!
The right to pursue our lives as we so choose...
Take a moment to reflect on the sacrifice so many make to ensure that these rights stay in place... Say Thank you! Or take a little extra time and do something for the troops who are deployed currently. If you need ideas of what that can be or how to do it let me know and I will be happy to help!
Happy Veterans Day to all who have served or are currently serving! And thank you to all their families because you too sacrifice for our country.
