As the holiday season moves into full swing and the nightmare of our consumer-centric society comes crashing down around our ears, days like today remind me that there are more important things to be thankful for than turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie; there are more important things to be excited about than a new iPhone or set of tools.
On a day like today, Veterans Day, we can pause our lives for a moment and remember that our freedom is not free and all the things that we enjoy and give thanks for in this country came at a cost. So, today especially, or any day, please truly thank our men and women in the Armed Forces. Our freedom is not free and even if you disagree with the politics remember that your right to disagree was paid for by those men and women.
To all the service men and women out there, thank you, from me and my family. Because of you I live free.
