Veterans Day

I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.

Bob Dylan (1941 - )

U.S. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed an Armistice Day a legal holiday; "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day'."

Remember veterans you know and you don't know. Think of all of the sacrifices they made for you and your country. My Dad is one of them; he is a Korean War veteran. He is one of our country's many heroes.

This recent election has made a lot of people proud of their country. Proud to be an American. Hope for the future. Pray for everyone in harms way today defending our country, whether or not you believe they should be there, they need to be in our thoughts and prayers, these are the Veterans of tomorrow. They are sacrificing themselves, their lives, their families, to protect us, our country, and our way of life.
