Remembrance Day

Today is a day to remember, those that have served your country.  Ones that have given the ultimate sacrifice and given their lives, or the life they had, so that we can all enjoy the freedom that we do.

Take time out today, to reflect.  I lost my great grandfather in Siberia, during the war.  Never met him, but heard stories of my family heritage, that came from Poland during some horrible times.  One thing I pray, is that our children never have to face some of the war that our forefathers have faced, or that some of our military are facing right now.

My wish is for a world of Peace, Acceptance, and Tolerance.  In today's world, there isn't enough of any of that.  People are quick to judge, without knowing the facts, and easy to turn their backs on people who are in need.  I was reading an article the other day, about Soldiers in the USA who have come home from combat to no home, and end up on the street, because of the trauma they have experienced.  I know the article is old, but I can't help but think that it hasn't changed much.  It breaks my heart to know that someone who has given their life, to ensure our safety, is homeless, and jobless.  You can see the article (from 2008) right here

Have a great day everyone.
