PINE BELT (WDAM) - Our nation just celebrated America's military veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
Veterans Day –originally Armistice Day and created in recognition of the ending of hostilities in World War I –
is an annual anniversary with thanksgiving, prayer and events designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations.
Since our world is not a peaceful world and war will continue to be waged amongst nations, Veterans Day will continue to be relevant for many generations to come as it has been for many in the past and present.
On Veterans Day - a day of remembrance – people all across America remembered those who have sacrificed before us that we may live free and pursue our unalienable rights as U.S. citizens.
Consider this: Have you given any thought as to how you will show your appreciation to Veterans, not only on a designated holiday, but throughout the year ?
If you know a veteran - reach out to him or her and thank them for all they did on behalf of this nation.
If you don't know of one then say a prayer ALL Veterans and their families. Those simple acts will mean more than you know and it's the least we can do.
