We will remember them...

By Vichara

…and with the going down of the sun, we will remember them. Today marks the day that around the country we take time to remember those family members and people that we know that served their country to defend the freedoms we now know. To some it is just a day off from school or work with little acknowledgment of the reasons why. And for some rightly so as they may not have a direct connection to those that an early age decided willingly that it was the noble thing to do to defend their country and others from threats to our lives and freedom. While not necessarily attractive to be proud of things our veterans did during the course of battle, we can honor their courage that they thought it was the right things to do and retain the freedoms that we sometimes take for granted. My father and 5 of my uncles did this in WWII and all came back and for that I thank them and remember them today.
