A SALUTE TO ALL THE VETERANS
I know I waited longer than I should have today in giving a big salute to all the vets who sacrificed and continue to sacrifice so much for this country of ours. I was never able to serve in the military due to a broken neck I sustained when I was 19 years old. Even if I had not of had that auto wreck that probably should have killed me I probably would not have served any way unless I had gotten drafted. I was still a selfish, ego driven young man at that age, and did not fully comprehend living a life of service. Today, I have lived long enough to better understand things like war and peace, countries and the such. Right now is not the time to talk about all that except to say I sure wish there never had to be another war of any kind. To me war is only an illusion brought about by a lack of positive thoughts. Strictly speaking from the knowledge I have gained I now hold the highest regards and esteem for all of our service men and women who have served in any kind of way to help keep our great country free. A very special thanks to all of you on this day that is set aside to honor all of your service and sacrifices. From the deepest part of my soul I say thank you. "HUGS"
