It is not Veteran's Day,
or the 4th of July,
but I have been reminded this week to be thankful for those who are sacrificing
for me and for my freedom.
I think of service men and women in places far hotter than NC.
I think of those eating less than home cooked meals night after night.
I think of the parents "going it alone" for 6 months or more at a time.
I think of those who are changed because of their time in the service -
those with mental struggles,
those with physical impairments ...
I am thankful for those serving today - near and far away.
