VETERANS DAY

November 12, 2007    

November 11, the eleventh day of the eleventh month of each year, was set aside after World War I to honor all those who have served in the armed forces of the United States of America.  As Abraham Lincoln said when honoring those who fought in a previous war, "It is altogether fitting and proper that we do so." 

Freedom always comes with a price.  Freedom is always kept with continuing payments, usually in blood, often with life itself.  The men and women who serve in our nation's military commit themselves to put their lives on the line so that the rest of us can enjoy this wonderful form of democracy in this wonderful country of the United States. 

 We are a nation that has been truly blessed.  Too often we take those blessing for granted.  The ceremonies and tributes to the ones who make it possible for there to be "a land of the free and home of the brave" remind us that there are always those who would take these hard won and priceless liberties from us. 

To all who have donned the uniform of our country and worn it with honor we say thank you and God bless you.  May we remember to honor you always. 

I'm Jim Cameron.  Let us hear from you.
