One thousand flags stand proudly on our town common right now in honor of Veterans Day. These flags represent love and honor, sadness and grief, valor and bravery and other ideals. But they also represent people. Soldiers who left home, some who did not return, and some who did return as veterans.
Today we honor those veterans and I think this quote from Abraham Lincoln appropriately says why we should:
Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.
Let us be the citizens who care for our brothers (and sisters) by honoring and thanking them, not just on Veterans Day, but on every day.
