Thank you Veterans!

On this Veteran’s Day I want to thank every person who has ever served. You are true heroes! My heart goes out to those of you who have lost a loved one in any war (that I believe we have no place to be there in the first place!), or have a family member or friend return home from fighting with physical and emotional damage. It sounds selfish of me on this day, to be grateful that my husband never got past Army training, especially because the reason he could not continue on was because he sustained such an awful injury and as a result, permanent disability. I know many of you do not have your partners home with you, or perhaps you do, but they too are disabled or completely altered by the horrific act of war. I hope your soldier loved ones return home to you quickly, and that any physical damage (and/or emotional) is healed quickly.

I will be back to writing more tomorrow, but today is just for being thankful. Though I may disagree with our country’s soldiers fighting wars in countries we need not be in, instead of our government focusing more on assistance for the countless number of servicewomen and men who are home and need help readjusting to civilian life, finding work, getting therapy, surgery, specialist care, whatever they need, instead of being on a very long waiting list for an appointment with the V.A. (at least where my family and I live). I am unhappy with our government’s priorities. Of utmost importance is caring for soldiers like every day is Veteran’s Day, not just this single day each year.
