i just want to take this moment and thank all the veterans who have served…the ones i know and the ones i do not know.
thank you to the men in my family who are subjects of pride in doing something i myself could not do.
as i say thank you with the deepest of gratitude in the same breath i say that i wish for a day when a man or woman needs only to soldier up for his or her family. a day in which there will be no war. a day in which there will be no hunger. and a day when a mother doesnt have to say bye to her baby shipping out. and a day when a little boy never has to miss his daddy.
i will take a moment of gratitude for this life and a moment to see a peaceful world.
thank you all who have served for your dedication, sacrifice, and gift.
