Veterans

Just some late night ramblings.

My family was watching TV tonight. My mind, occupied elsewhere, began registering the repeated mention of “military” and veterans. A few touching tributes to veterans from the NFL, and some obnoxious commercials announcing “Veterans Day Mega Sales!!” interspersed with other sponsors and their mentions of thankfulness for our military. 

I just wish we didn’t reserve honor, didn’t withhold it, until a specific date showed up on our calendar. 

This nation of ours might have its problems, but every day, EVERY SINGLE DAY, I am grateful to be an American. I am grateful for those who fought for, and served, this country.
