Today is Veterans day here in the US. We honor those who have served to protect and defend our nation and it’s people. I’m so grateful to live in a country where I’m free to make my own choices and live the life I chose. We are so used to having our freedoms we don’t often think enough about the sacrifices made to obtain and keep them. Today we do. Flags go up, cemeteries are visited and decorated and we thank our veterans.
As I’m getting to enjoy a weekend with daughter at college, I wasn’t thinking much about this. But because of others sacrifices, I was able to drive my own car, 5 hours away from home, by myself, eat where I choose, walk around the park, enjoy a lovely afternoon and evening… At complete peace about my safety.
To all those who don’t have this luxury and it should be a right but I acknowledge it isn’t for some… May you continue to find ways to be free. May you continue to seek personal ways to find that peace within yourself. I hope all those who don’t have these same “freedoms”, keep pushing and fighting for them.
Today I honor all veterans and remember my freedoms are due to their sacrifices.
