Veterans Day : November 11, 2008

Today, in my hometown there will be a parade and a ceremony at Hillcrest Park to honor our Veterans. The scene will be repeated and duplicated many times across America today. And well it should. This is a special day. A day to remember the brave service of our living men and women that made sacrifices so that we can enjoy our freedom.
But we shouldn't stop honoring and thinking about our Veterans on one day.
The act of writing, publishing, protesting, and stating out loud an opinion even if it is diametrically opposed to our government official position...you can thank a Veteran for helping preserve that freedom.
When you went into the voting booth last Tuesday to make important choices..your choice.. about the country and your community, you can thank a Veteran for that.
When you went to the Church, Synagogue, or place of worship of your choice last Sunday (or maybe you choose not to go)...you can thank a Veteran for that.
