Hope everyone is having a good peaceful Veteran’s Day. Veteran’s Day is viewed differently by all. Here are some of the answers I received when I asked some members of the Coalition community what Veterans’ Day meant to them:
“Veterans’ Day to me is a day where Americans who live and breath daily on the carcasses of these dead souls can appreciate and give thanks to the tribulations soldiers have had to undertake. Some paid with their life, and in turn, preserved many. The extent of the holiday’s charisma has descended, though. Some people are even unaware of today’s significance. Regardless, for those who do recognize its value, they can homage the many who gave their life and sacrificed much to maintain the often forgotten quality of being free.”
“Over here in England it is known as Rememberance Day. To me it is to celebrate that such brave men lay down their lives to protect others. We must not be sad that these people died we should be thankful that such great people lived. This year for us the focus was on the troops in Iraq and Afganistan such as my Dad’s Cousin Lance Corporal Matt Croucher who jumped on a grenade to save the lives of his squad. Luckily he survived coming out of it with only a nosebleed.”

Veterans’ Day is celebrated world wide. I give my thanks and prayers to all veterans of all nations who fight against tyranny and for their self sacrifice.
