Veterans Day

"...land of the free. And the home of the brave."

Truer words were never spoken.

Today we honor the tremendous sacrifices of our nation's most honorable men and women.

Currently there are 24 million veterans living in the United States. 24 million people who put their lives on the line in the service of our country.

We should be honoring them each and every day. Their faces and their stories should adorn the front pages of newspapers and be the top story on our evening news programs.

But sadly that does not happen in reality.

So in honor of their heroism we give them this day.

Today is not the day to discuss our feelings on the wars we are fighting, or exit strategies, or to debate military funding.

No politics today.

Say a prayer for the fallen heroes and for the continued security of our great nation.

And thank a veteran.
