Don't Forget

Today is Veteran's Day. Don't forget that for over 200 years our peace has been bought by other Americans who were willing to step up.

When I think of the sacrifice of veterans I often think of a George Orwell quote that many of us had rather not consider: "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."

If you know a veteran, call them and say, "Thank you."

If you see someone dressed in a military uniform, shake their hand and thank them for their service.

Thank you veterans, today and in the past, for stepping up.
