It’s been an emotional week for our country. There were cheers and tears in the aftermath of a controversial Presidential Election, and coincidentally today we share the same emotions as we mark the commemoration of Veterans Day.
First and foremost, I applaud all of the service men and women, our loved ones, friends, and colleagues, who are United States Military Veterans. I wish I could hug every single one of you. It’s because of you we have our freedom. It’s because of you we feel safe in our homes. It’s because of you we are the greatest country in the World!
You dedicate your lives to us… people you have never met, people you have never broken bread with, and people who may not appreciate what you sacrifice to make our lives better. Why? Because you love this country, everything it stands for, and you believe in the Constitution of the United States!
There shouldn’t be just one day to honor our Veterans. If you see a soldier, or meet a Veteran, shake their hand, give them a hug, pay for their dinner, or show an act of kindness to let them know we appreciate how unselfishly, how unconditionally, they dedicate their lives to making our world better. There aren’t enough hugs or words of thanks to tell you how much I appreciate what you do for our country.
This week will be best remembered by an Election that shocked the world. Most will welcome President Trump our Commander in Chief with hopes for change. Others will mock and protest his appointment.
The country has spoken. We can’t let the world see us divided! It is what it is; let’s move on with our lives. We are Americans; we have been through the best and worst of times. Let’s give this guy a chance, see what he can do before we judge. I would have said the same for Hillary.
Pull up your bootstraps; jump on that horse, because we are in for an interesting ride. Live your life that our Veterans and military have scarified their lives for so we can make this world a better place. We are the People, we live in the best country in the world, we have the freedom to do anything we want…Embrace it, Live it, Love it!
When you feel down or uncertain in these times…listen to the Beatles…
“Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, I say… it’s all right…”
It will be all right…
We are One, We are Strong, and We are Americans!
