For Our Veterans, The Brave, Patriots

Venterans Day

The words on this image are key to the forging of our nation, and the amazing gift we are given in those who serve, the sacrifices made.  My Dad was a WWII vet, Air Force, and that is something I will always be proud of.  He may not have been the right match for my mom, but despite his leaving when I was a kid, which not surprising, as they were really not compatible, I have the pride of knowing he served his country, never complained, even though he suffered head trauma and was never really the same after.  It is because of that bravery that Europe was not overtaken by Nazis forever, as my mom points out because Italy was overrun with German soldiers and they were basically taking over.  That is why when anyone says that the GOP is full of Nazis and all that I get angry because those who fought that war, who understand freedom versus the horror of the Nazis, Communists and all that, know we have no Nazis or Dictators in the GOP, we do amongst the Left and other Parties.  To say we are Nazi is a total insult to my father and all those who fought that war and wars to eradicate such things.  May we be enlightened this Veterans Day to appreciate the beauty of our Capitalist, Federalist Republic and make sure it gets back to that in full. 

Amen

We are all blessed to have Katherine’s strength, wisdom, and words to write “Pray For Me Tonight’
