As we approach Veterans Day – a day our country has set aside to honor our many and diverse veterans throughout its history – there are remembrances sitting at my desk. A mug with pictures of eagles, the flag, and the words “Freedom is Not free”, pictures of an eagle flying with a flag, a house displaying the flag, the Statue of Liberty in front of a flag, and a small flag.
Today I also proudly wear my red, white, and blue necklace to show my love and respect for my country, my flag, and especially for the millions who have served them so well! It is an honor to remember them and their many sacrifices.
I appreciate the freedoms we have and I strive to use them wisely. I try to instill reverence, patriotism, and love among our citizens and rising generations so all may continue to benefit from the hard-fought efforts of not only our veterans, their families, and loves ones.
Thank you, Veterans!
