Veterans Day

As I was driving to work today listening to NPR, it struck me that we only take one day out of the entire year to honor those men and women who have served in our military.  This does not seem right to me.  It does not matter if you agree with the current conflicts or war in general, what matters is supporting these men and women who choose to be in the military, sacrificing home and family life in the process.

So while it is important to celebrate today, take the time to celebrate these citizens every day.  Take the time to attend a funeral for one of the fallen or participate in a joyous homecoming.  Doing so may reinforce what makes this country great and perhaps make you appreciate life more.
