“Happy” Veterans Day. When I think about this special day it seems that the word “Happy” before the Veterans Day just doesn’t seem like the right word choice?
Veterans Day is a day to honor all our courageous Veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much while serving honorably in the military service. It is also a time ti reflect upon the many soldiers who have paid the “ultimate price” so that all of us can enjoy the freedoms and democracy that we are fortunate to enjoy in this great Country of ours.
Maybe a better word would be to replace “Happy” with the word “SALUTING”. I am very proud of all our wonderful Veterans, but it makes me sad (not happy) when I think of all those soldiers who have lost their lives while serving us and the tremendous impact that their loss have had on all their loving families.
On this official holiday known as Veterans Day, I “Salute” all the Men and Women, past and present, who have dedicated their lives to protect us all and to preserve the democratic ideals and freedoms that we all enjoy.
As I do every year and as Terry did for me in year’s past, I place Amercan Flags in front of my gardens to remind all citizens to Honor, Reflect and to Pray and to express gratitude to all our Veterans on this very special day.
