Veteran's Day



Today is Friday, 11/08/2013.  Monday, we officially celebrate Veteran's Day.  Since 1776, men and women have sacrificed to keep us free.  Most are/were far away from their loved ones, missing birthdays and holidays.  Some gave up their limbs while others have laid down their lives so that we can speak and think as we like, and to worship as we want.  So often when a person is born into our free culture, those freedoms are taken for granted, and the thought that they cannot be lost is somewhere in their consciousness.  That is false and naive thinking.  People have died to preserve those freedoms, and more stand in line to keep it that way.  Why?  Because there are people and nations who still want to take away our way of life.  Chew on that as you spend hours playing video games and texting silly thoughts to your friends, then take a moment and thank a Vet.
