This Thursday is Veterans Day and all I see are ads about sales. I wonder if we've forgotten that our nation was built by the blood sweat and tears of men and women who were ready and willing to lay down their lives for us. Not just them, but the families that have lost someone to a war, past and present.
Now is a time that we remember the fallen and pay our respects to the ones that made it back. If you know someone who is in the service or even if you don't, let them know that you are thankful for what they've sacrificed.
