If you can read this, thank a veteran

No, I'm not slamming teachers with the article title. I'm grateful for my daughter's teacher, and all she does. But I'd like you to think for a minute about what today's remembrance means. From the sacrifice of citizen-soldiers, we gained a country to call our own. From the sacrifice of our armed forces in WWI and WWII, Europe was freed from tryanny. From the sacrifice of our service members, people all over the world were kept safe. If it weren't for the willingness of ordinary men and women to defend their country and her liberty, we would not have the right to vote as we choose, read what we will, speak what we think, believe, worship or learn. These rights were bought, and bought dearly.

Thank a veteran today.
