I missed my thankful Thursday post yesterday but I think today is a more appropriate day to express my gratitude this week. It is Veterans Day and I’m thankful for those who serve and who have served our country so I can live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
My grandfather served in the Navy during the Second World War on the same boat as George Bush, the U.S. San Jancinto. My uncle had a high draft number and chose to enlist in the US Coast Guard during the Vietnam war. My cousin and his wife serve in the US Air Force and my brother-in-law serves in the US Coast Guard. They are the brave so I can have my own opinions, believe in what I chose to believe and to let others believe what they want.
This week in our country was definitely one for the history books and while I don’t know what the future may hold, I hope it is one that is inclusive, loving and respectful of our neighbors around the world. I’ll do my part as my gift to those who serve(d) our country. I am part of Team USA.
