I grew up in a household that was always proud to support our country and the men and women who gives their lives for our freedom. My Dad is a veteran and as a young girl I spent lots of time at the feet of other veterans who I have developed some treasured friendships. Because of this background Veterans Day just can not go un-noticed!
“But the freedom that they fought for,
and the country grand they wrought for,

“Freedom is never free” ~Unknown
and I would call that patriot.” ~Gary Hart
“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms.
taking the form of readiness to die.”
~G. K. Chesterton
“In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” ~Mark Twain, The Notebook, 1935
