Skywatch Friday: Veterans' Day

flag fort macon

Veterans' Day. I think in the United States, where we prize our opinions more than just about anything most days, it takes a special a person to put opinion aside and offer up life itself in service of a bunch of ideas that take their life and breath from some imaginative and clear thinkers along with a rag-tag bunch of rebels a few centuries ago. It's not the way we're made. Love takes many shapes, many forms. That kind of patriotism is one of them.

  16. You are so right.
    I always wished I could fly to take them all under my wing and protect them from the dangers they face.
    Life should not be about danger but about love and freedom.
    If you have both, we would not require so many laws.The world would be safe and secure.

  17. Thank you for your post. It was lovely for Veteran’s Day. I, too, posted in honor of my daddy who served in WWI...This is always a day of sadness for me when I think of what he and the other endured as they fought in the Great War. We must NEVER forget our veterans and their families.

  28. HI Sandy, thanks for visiting my blog. I see you have lots of goodies to look at. I stopped by your graffiti blog and love it. I'll definitely be checking that out often.
