Everywhere I turn it's 25%, 30% and even 40% off sales in honor of Veteran's Day and while I love the savings, the meaning of the holiday is diluted. Today is a day we need to remember all those who have served, are serving and will serve our country.
Call me crazy but I was recently watching Shahs of Sunset and Asa made a comment that music is banned in Iran. Let that sink in for a second - music is banned. How often do we take music for granted? If you're like me, it's just about everyday.
How blessed are we to live in a country of abundant freedoms: freedom of expression, freedom of religion and freedom of press? We have the freedom to share our thoughts and feelings on blogs and Facebook and however else we choose. What a blessing.
I'm so grateful for the freedoms instilled by the service and sacrifices made by our past and current military and their family.
For those military men and women that I know and love, thank you. For those I'll never meet, thank you. For the military families that carry so much of the burden for the rest of us, thank you.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
God Bless America and its Veterans,
