It is Veteran’s Day here in the USA. It is a day to remember all who served in our military and all who lost their lives. Some look on this day as somber. A day to morn all we have lost when it comes to, sometimes senseless, violence. It is not easy to lose someone you love. It is heart wrenching to see a friend, a family member or a mentor suffer. Their struggles can be intense. The lives and security of millions were resting on their shoulders at one time or another. I cannot pretend to understand. All I can say is thank you. From the bottom of my heart thank you. For the freedoms you fought for, for the time in your life you dedicated, for the commitment you gave to strangers, I thank you. This is a day of thankfulness and joy. Joy that someone I love, cared enough to love unknown people and serve this nation I call home.
A beautiful day of remembrances around the world. Let us never forget the sacrifices made by our loved ones and yet, let us live joyfully in honor of their service, both in the past and present.
