Wednesday, November 11


I never paid particular attention to Veteran's Day before moving to the east coast. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for all the men and women out there who have served our country, and served it well. However, I just thought it was one of those days that the calendar composers thought they had to include, but no one paid particular attention to,
kind of like flag day.
Don't be fooled and call me unpatriotic for that,
growing up in Utah just shielded me from understanding it's significance.
Move me to the east coast. Land me a job working for the government.
And give me a day off in the middle of the week in honor of our Veteran's, and I'll quickly understand the value and importance behind this blessed day.
"A day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace
and to be thereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day'"
a.k.a. Veteran's Day.
Thanks Pres Wilson.
God bless our military Veteran's
and a day off in the middle of the week to be spent at the beach!
