{This Moment} on Veteran's Day . . .

At this moment, our beautiful country is in turmoil.  People are losing friends and family members over our election.  There is hatred and violence to be seen every time you turn on the news.  It is beyond words for me to describe how I feel when I look at it and think about it.  To see someone burn an American flag, to me, is as low as a citizen of this country can go.  For today, I will focus on what this day means.  It is a day to honor the men and women who have served and are currently serving to keep our country safe.

My husband served 8 years in the United States Navy and is a veteran of the Gulf War.

My dad served in the United States Army during the Viet Nam War and was a Purple Heart recipient.


Today is about gratitude and respect and reflection.  Looking back on how far we've come.  We are not a perfect nation but we are a united nation and need to be once again.

Wishing you love and peace ~ Wendy

A beautiful tribute to your husband and Dad. I feel your pain we had a similar problem this side of the pond when we went to the polls about the European Union. Take care.
