It was an honor to cover this Remembrance Day 2014. While there, I visualized the past and the present, and wondered, will this also be the future. I certainly hope not, but with the occurrences of the past couple of weeks, one can’t help but think that a war is coming.
As we honor our fallen heroes, a quote comes to mind from a fictitious veteran. He said, “All we want is for our country to love us as much as we love it.” How true. So the next time you see a veteran, or a person in uniform, even if you’re too shy to approach them, give them a smile that tells them, thank you for what you did/do.
