Today I think of my grandfather and so many other people’s grandfathers, the men, the women, and many families children, who GIVE ALL. They are BRAVE. They are HEROES. They stand for our country. They STAND UP for us all. They have more HONOR than some who are in top positions in our country. They are the ultimate status symbols. There is no way we can repay for the giving, the sacrifice and the deeds performed.
I began my blog to share stories. I shared those stories with my grandpa. As I wrote, I was talking to him. I was sharing something with him that he didn’t do. He may not have been a hunter, but he was a Veteran of the United States Air Force. He along with many others helped to build our country.
Grandpa passed away two years ago.
He spent his last couple years in great sadness. He watched the news and surfed the internet with grief on his mind. He was saddened that so many people had seemed to forget his and his companies efforts. I am certain he never would have imagined our country would be in its current state. “Good grief.” Yep. That is what he would say.
Today I think of him.
Today, on Veteran’s Day, I pray.
I pray the people of our country will HONOR ALL OF YOU. I pray the people of our country will RESPECT YOU. I pray the people of our country will RECOGNIZE YOU for YOUR GREATNESS. I pray the people of our country will stand up with as much DIGNITY AND PRIDE AS YOU.
Today, on Veteran’s Day, I THANK YOU!!!!
