Veteran’s Day ~ Remembrance

After over 10 years of service, I finally had to replace the American Flag that proudly flies in front of our home and business. We don’t fly it every day, but I always make sure we at least display it on Memorial Day, the 4th of July and Veterans Day. This year Veterans Day comes shortly after Election Day, as I hung our flag I felt especially proud and blessed to know that we live in a country that honors and cherishes the sacrifice of all of our servicemen and women who give their lives to provide and protect our freedom. And for the first time in many years, I also felt a sense of restored hope for the future and security of America.

God Bless Our Veterans, and God Bless America!

“FOR TOO LONG, TOO MANY OF US HAVE PAID SCANT ATTENTION TO THE SACRIFICE OF A BRAVE FEW IN OUR MIDST.  IT IS UNHEALTHY FOR A NATION TO BECOME DETACHED FROM THOSE WHO SECURE IT.”_______Howard Schultz, author of For Love of Country

I first want to give my personal THANK YOU to each and every veteran that fights for peace and freedom!!!  I tear up and become speechless at the mere sight of any one of you!!

 Here in the United States of America we do our best to convey our gratitude to these men and women for giving so much of themselves for our safety on this day.  In such nations as: Canada, New Zealand, Australia, England, India, Mauritius, South Africa and many in Europe, a day set aside is called Remembrance Day and was recently observed.
