You do not have to believe in war. That is not what this is about. This is about supporting the human beings who defend us and our country. Today, we stand up and show our Troops that we care. We remember.
You don not have to have a huge celebration or a party – Wear a poppy. Walking around with that red and black on your chest shows our troops their sacrifices were worth it.
So like I always say, today, at 11:11 am, turn off the cell phone, log off facebook, turn off the television, take the phone off the hook, whatever you have to do to go still for one minute. Just a minute out of your life to remember in silent prayer or contemplation those we lost, and those still fighting to come home.
So, hug your veteran a little harder today. Say you love them a little louder and a little more frequent, and breakfast in bed wouldn’t hurt either.
Today, November 11th, is our chance to say thank you, we love you, we remember.
Love to you all,
