Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures


Honoring Veterans

“No one can ever write a full account of the wars that were never fought, the losses that were never suffered, the tears that were never shed because the men and women of the United States Military risked their lives for peace. None of us should ever forget that. ”

President Clinton 1/5//2001

 

Today – 11.11.11 –

I pause to honor those who have served and can still celebrate their moments.

I honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service of our freedom – they honor all those who stand, remembering, by their “last full measure of devotion.”

Today I’m dressed in my best suit.  Today I will dance. Today I will reflect.  And then I’ll address some envelopes and prepare to mail letters of thanks and appreciation to soldiers deployed to danger zones.

May we…always remember and honor those who serve.

Mary Anne…I can’t thank you enough for your beautiful words, and for sharing President Clinton’s words. Veteran’s day is one of the most precious holidays that Michael and I honor, with respect for our family members, friends, and the many, many, many people who have served our country so that we can retain the freedom to believe and practice and honor what we wish. Thank you to all of our service men and women and thank you to you for your beautiful salute to them.

Your Vote Matters
IF YOU ARE TEMPTED to think casting a vote doesn't matter...think on this:  Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children's Defense Fund, was the first black woman admitted to the bar in Mississippi (1965).  She said in I DREAM A WORLD, " People would do their voter registration and they would be
