Veteran's Day is a day to reflect on those who bravely went before us to secure the freedoms afforded by our constitution and to protect those who cannot protect themselves. I hear it over and over again, but I just can't imagine being in the midst of gun fire, cannon booms, air raids, or facing the death of myself or my children as victims of war. I only know that I would be terrified.
I once heard that, "courage is not an absence of fear...but having fear and doing it anyway."
The men and women who have faced and currently face these harsh realities are honored today for their courage...inspite of fear.
Thank a Veteran today!
