As We Approach Veterans Day

As we approach the sacred Veterans Day holiday, here are some truths which may help us focus, observe and reflect on the meaning of the occasion that we all should be ever mindful of.

It is the Veteran, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Veteran, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the Veteran, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Veteran, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Veteran, who salutes the Flag,

It is the Veteran, who serves under the Flag, to be buried by the flag.

Have a happy and safe weekend! #Veterans
