Remembering a Veteran
The plight of Veterans in America is a stain upon the very fabric of our society. We all want Freedom but many chose to believe that it’s FREE. My Dad (also a Veteran) told me when I was a boy: “Nothing is FREE.” The point of this was never sharper than the images we see everyday of paralyzed Veterans. These men and women are not to be pitied; they gave some measure of their life to pay the debt that Freedom demands. What did you pay?
It occurred to me that many people skipped military service leaving it instead to the “other” guy or gal. O.K., we get it. Now, perhaps you can do something for those that have served. Perhaps you can serve them? You don’t have to volunteer your time or take something away from a schedule that’s busy enough with family stuff. We all get that too. BUT, you can send a few dollars to the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
Are you still asking why? If so, let me tell you that this organization has been supporting the needs of veterans from WWII up to and including today. Their organization is setup to help in very effectual ways. Give what you have, a few dollars. $5, $10, $20 or more. In fact, sixty cents a day (slightly more than $18.00 per month) you can make a difference in the lives of veterans. Think of it as your personal “tour of duty.”
Here’s a video from someone else that feels we should support our veterans.
