The next time you thank a Veteran,
- Thank them with your vote, to help ensure the freedom they sacrificed for, and secure it for future generations.
- Thank them by teaching your children to love, honor, and respect our history, our flag, our country, and those who sacrificed for our freedom.
- Thank them with your passion, to take the time to educate yourself and learn the lessons of history, so we all avoid evil from being repeated and revisiting future generations, thereby promoting peace and keeping other veterans from having to pay the ultimate price like those no longer with us today.
- Thank them with your prayers, for those currently in service, for those who have suffered injury and loss, for those struggling with their experience, some homeless, and many often in search of hope.
This is not to say you cannot thank them with your words, but to ensure your words and their sacrifice do not become meaningless.
That is the best way we can say thank you to our Veterans.
Every step this country takes towards a socialist society is a step backwards, not forwards. It is a step away from the forward thinking of our Founders and of the constitution that guarantees the rights of the individual, not of the masses, to a place where freedom is denied from one human to another.
