There may be posts on this already, but I wanted to segregate my post from everyone elses... feel free to post your own thoughts.
Today we remember. We remember the fallen soldiers, the families of fallen soldiers, from the past, and the present. We remember not only the soldiers on the good side, we remember soldiers on the enemy's side.
Today should be a day where we remember the sons.. the fathers, the grandfathers, the uncles, the brothers, the mothers, the daughters, the grandmothers, the aunts.. everyone and anyone who gave their life for their countries sake.
Our freedoms world wide are thankful to the soldiers who lived, and the soldiers who died. If it were not for these brave, selfless individuals, who knows where today's world would be?
The numbers of surviving veterans from the great World Wars are dwindling, and our chances to thank them are becoming further from reach.. I suggest when you see a person in uniform today, you thank them for their contribution to your safety, your freedom, and for the things we have today.
On this day, we force ourselves to remember the darkest moments in history, yet we also celebrate humankinds triumphs and successes. Take a moment today to thank a veteran for their contributions to our societies, world wide.
May your God or being bless you, your families, and the great veterans who fought for our lives.
