How much should we give…


I spent my afternoon walking through the Field of Honor at The Hermitage.  The exhibit features 50 rows of 20 flags each, many sponsored by local businesses and proud families, all standing in tribute to our veterans past and present.  The display overlooks the graves of Civil War soldiers from both sides and taken together make for a somber and reflective experience.  If our veterans and their families hadn’t made the sacrifices they did (and do) I would not have the freedoms I so often take for granted.  My sincerest hope is that everyone take a moment on Veteran’s Day to remember our military men and women, and if you happen to see a soldier say ‘thanks’.  It’s the least any of us can do.


God bless….

Land of the free because of the brave

Saying ‘thanks’ doesn’t begin to cover how much is owed to all of the men and women who serve this great country as members of our military forces.  In honor of Veteran’s Day 2015 attend a parade, say a prayer, write a card, or just say ‘thanks’ to a soldier you see.
