Thank You For Your Service To Our Country!
This morning I once again woke up in a free country. The price for the freedoms I enjoy here in the USA everyday didn’t cost me a dime. That price has been paid for me, many, many times, over many, many years, by brave men and women in our Armed Forces.
I am grateful to live in this free country. But, that doesn’t mean that everything is supposed to be free, or, that somehow I deserve to have some of what others have worked for and earned. Here in the USA, our constitution says that God has given each of us certain unalienable rights, among those are life, liberty and the pursuit of happines.
I am grateful that because we are free, I can then choose to live, have the liberty to think and make my own choices, and, I have the right to pusue my own happiness. Happiness is not my right, but rather, my pursuit of happiess, that is my right.
Take some time today to say, “Thank you,” to a veteran. In fact, anytime, and any day, show your gratitude to a veteran.
You might want to watch the video I posted on Veteran’s Day back in 2009. And, you might also like to watch this very inspiring video.
Thanks again to all our veterans, and may God continue to be gracious and bless my country, the United States of America.
