Some holidays are occasions for parties, a day off and important traditions. Today is Veterans Day. It’s a holiday, but not like any other. Rather, it’s a day of reflection, giving thanks, remembering and offering deep appreciation for those who have served in our nation’s military, often a great personal sacrifice, so that we can live securely and in freedom. So today, thank God for those who have served. Say a prayer of protection for all who are serving. And go out of your way to say, “Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
