Today is 11-11-11. It’s also Veteran’s Day.
One of the things that makes the United States special is our steady devotion of resources, both human and financial, to the cause of freedom world wide.
If you have a friend or relative who has served us, take time to drop them a note or give them a call today thanking them for their dedication and heroism.
I found this on the National Day of Prayer site today. These are the words of Ronald Reagan in his 1988 Veteran’s Day address:
“… in our hearts you will always be young, full of the love that is youth, love of life, love of joy, love of country – you fought for your country and for its safety and for the freedom of others with strength and courage. We love you for it. We honor you. And we have faith that, as He does all His sacred children, the Lord will bless you and keep you, the Lord will make His face to shine upon you and give you peace, now and forevermore.”
Couldn’t write it better.
