Veteran's Day

Yesterday we decided to treat ourselves to Appebee's Veteran's free meal giveaway.  The number of elderly Veteran's was amazing and many were wearing hats that identified when and where they had served.  I was particularly moved by one that read "Prisoner of War".  The time period was World War II.  

How can you thank someone enough that has endured that?  Our dear friend lost her husband in the ongoing Iraq War.  How can we ever thank her and her family for their loss?  Veteran's Day is but one day of thanks to our Veterans and the families who have endured the unendurable.  Let's pour out our hearts to them.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." -John Fitzgerald Kennedy
