This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
Today I’m thankful for Life
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart throbs.
They most live
Who think most, feel the noblest, act the best.
Philip James Bailey
On Veterans Day, we take time to remember those that gave their all in order to preserve our freedom and protect us.
When I think of courage, my first thought is of the brave men and women who serve my community and my county. I honor them for their inner strength and power to rise above fear and display amazing courage
Life. as I know it, would not be the same at all without the generous contributions of our veterans to our country. I cannot imagine living in a world where war was a constant way of living. So many have lost so much and I truly have not known that kind of loss. The loss of freedom to do what they want and worship as they please.
Life is a precious gift and I try never to take mine for granted. Nor will I take those that have bravely gone before us for granted.
Freedom is never free.
