There Will Be Peace When You Are Done…

There Will Be Peace When You Are Done

Carry on my wayward son,
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

Carry on Wayward Son Kansas

I wanted to take a moment to think about the sacrifice our veterans make everyday. A moment of silence, a time to reflect, a minute to be grateful for what veterans have done for us. By the time this is posted and read, it will no longer be Veterans’ Day for the reader but that doesn’t mean there is not time for reflection.

Many members of my family are or were in the U.S. Armed Forces.  My father has been in the National Guard since before I can even remember anything else. Although I do not recall all the instances he had to be away from home because of his job, there have been periods of time I do remember him being away for several weeks to a few months for training. In fact, he is currently finishing up a month and a half training program to be eligible for his next possible promotion.  I miss him terribly and yet I know I am one of the lucky ones. He has not been called in for active duty. He has not been deployed to Iraq or Iran. But my aunt has. Other members of my family have been gone for over a year many times and the separation was brutal on their children. I thank the powers that be that they have all come home safely. Not everyone is so lucky. Our veterans sacrifice themselves and their families to defend our freedom and the values we hold dear. Men and women have died serving their county and there is never enough appreciation for their service.

Thank you, Veterans. Wherever you live, if you’ve served your country to protect Freedom, you are courageous and deserve all the respect in the world. Thank you family of veterans. Hardship is not unfamiliar to you, and you are as brave as any soldier deserving of the same amount of respect and gratitude.  Veterans living or passed on, we are forever in your debt for the sacrifices you continue to make for the sake of your country.

Thank you.
