November 11

Tomorrow is Veteran's Day in the US and Remembrance Day in Canada. Different name, same sacrifice. We all pay tribute to the men and women who sacrificed for our freedoms and those who continue to put themselves in harm’s way today.


It is also a time to honor the families of those who serve. These families have given their sons and daughters so that other people’s sons and daughters can live in peace. Whether the sacrifice is having their children gone for long periods, and the daily worries that go with that, or the ultimate sacrifice of their children's lives, we all owe them a debt a gratitude. My own kids are old enough to serve (and one is considering it) so I can only imagine the mix of pride and pain that goes along with having your child in uniform.

On this November 11, please thank a military mom or dad for what they offer and say a prayer for the safe return of every loved one serving.

I'm hosting a meeting and the topic of the day is Veterans Day. Do I need to stick to military veterans.

I stumbled on this completely by accident but am very honored to read this post. For all the vets, thank you. For all the vet families, it would be nice to create Albums of Hope for them when the come home or to say thank you when they come back. See CBS news cast

My father served in Vietnam, and I am so very thankful for his safe return.

God bless all our military men and women. Active and retired. I can't imagine what an amazing sacrifice they make.

Great post!

That was great! I have two sons, 2 & 6 years old now. I can't imagine letting them go off to war, but yet I know I may have to do it someday. Thanks for this reminder!
