Today is Veterans Day. Contrary to the newspaper advertisements, this is not a day to shop for sales at your local mall. This is a solemn day for reflection on our lives here in the greatest country in the world. Thanks to so many brave men and women of our Armed Forces, we have the freedom to write blogs such as this one; the freedom to live where we choose, to work where we find our passion, to marry and raise a family and teach our children about a wondrous God. We have the freedom to speak out against injustice, voice our opinions, and vote for the candidates of our choosing. So, take the time to thank a veteran today and every day because your personal freedom is a direct result of their selfless action.
