Today is Veteran's Day! One of the best days we celebrate as a nation. Why? Because these heroic people are who have fought so that we CAN be a nation. I encourage you to hug a military person today- the branch doesn't matter- they ALL do the same thing for us, SERVE & PROTECT! I love them for it.
So today, put aside your political beliefs because its really not about that today. Show great gratitude to our service men and women, honor those who willingly gave themselves to defending you- US. The blood spilled on the battle field or those who died on home soil- honor them.
When I think about these veterans, both living and gone, I cry. Jesus Christ said in John 15:13 "There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends." Because Christ did this for the entire world thousands of years ago at the highest magnitude I can now understand this kind of sacrifice for countrymen and it demands heartfelt gratitude.
It breaks my heart to see and know that our Veterans are not appreciated and cared for the way they SHOULD BE! Do your part, say thank you. Serve them today.
