There are so many people in the world today who have given so much of their lives to keeping the freedoms we have in this country. Today is veterans day and I felt it needed to be mentioned here on my blog.
My father served and never really told what he saw in the war but he was always quick to give honor where honor was due and I know there are many men and women who have given more than we will ever imagine.
Most of you know I work in long term care facility and yesterday we had a brief ceremony to remember the individuals who served and I must say I saw a few tears when the names were read off and a brief description was given of which division they served in, where they served and for how long. The Pledge of allegiance was said and those who could stood with hands over their hearts & spoke every word with dignity. Many of them rarely speak or find it difficult to articulate thoughts but they could say this with clarity.
Veterans today we honor you.
