Thank You for Your Service

from pipesmagazine.comHappy Veteran’s Day 2013. Take a moment and thank a veteran or an active service member today for your freedom. It doesn’t come for free. When we remember to be thankful for the things we have they become that much more important in our lives. There are people in the world who don’t have enough to eat, shelter or medicine. There are people who cannot speak their thoughts. There are people who don’t have access to education and knowledge; things that I believe are taken for granted in the US. Remember that early in the establishment of this nation our forefathers thought that these and other beliefs were important enough to fight and die for. Which is why we have days like today. The majority of people who live in poverty in the US would be considered wealthy in many places in this world.

Take a few minutes today and forget the upcoming holiday lists and general every day consumerism and think about what you already have. Thank someone who believed in those things enough to stand between you and those who would take that away from you.

Write on.
