VETERANS DAY

Today we pause to remember the thousands of men and women who have served and died in the armed forces to keep us free.  I heard someone on the radio the other day say "they served so that we may have, among other freedoms, free speech even if it is disrespectful or of another point of view."    Wow...even if it's disrespectful ??  Think about it, we can speak our minds even if it's disrespectful, even if we have a different point of view.  There are countries in this world where you can't do that or if you do...you are at risk for a prison sentence or even death.  To me this is just one reason why we owe those who serve in the military's of the free world a huge "THANK YOU !"  And remember no matter how you feel about where are troops are..we need to support them.   Remember...Freedom Isn't Free.

Great entry.  On this day when we honour our fallen dead we also remember those still fighting and risking their lives so that we may all be free.

Yep, we need to remember our troops and support them for protecting us and the freedom of others! We sometimes do take for granted our rights; glad you reminded us that we are free because others were willing to sacrifice their lives for us.
