"I’ll have you know that a soldier is the most holy of all humans because he is the most tested — most tested of all."
John Steinbeck, East of Eden
Today is a day that the world remembers and honors those who serve their countries.
Armistice Day. Remembrance Day. Veterans Day.
The world remembers and celebrates the end of what was supposed to be the war to end all wars. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Oh, were that true.
As Americans, we remember and honor those who serve and sacrifice for our country. Who sacrifice for our freedoms as the wars rage ever on.
Thank you. We owe you more than we can say. May we never forget.
"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
John F. Kennedy
