Today is the day we are thankful, for all the people who have lost time, limbs, sons, daughters, parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and their own life to war.
Today is the day we are thankful for what these people gave us, peace. safety. security in our country.
Today we try to figure out what it may mean to be a solider, to be a nurse, to be a driver, to play a part in a war.
Today we try and give thanks to all the unknown, dead solider’s, who go unnoticed. Who died for our country.
Today is a day, that we not only remember loss, but we remember what brought about the losses, what we have to lose with fighting and hate. And what we have to gain by finding peace, and acceptance in other people.
Today is the day we appreciate what people have done to keep our country safe.
Today is the day we realized what others have given, and what war takes away.
Today should not be the only day we do so. Many veterans have such an interesting story, such an interesting past. I’m sure they would be glad to share. They did so much for your country. Write a letter, talk to an elder person, take the time to volunteer, before it’s to late.
They may be gone, but never forgotten.
