November 11th

Today is November 11th. Remembrance Day in Canada, Veteran's Day in the US and Armistice Day in the UK. Whatever you call it, today is a day of mixed emotions. Pride, sorrow, solidarity. I am a woman who served but never fought. Two of three sisters can also say the same. My father did both, as did his father. My husband still serves and by the grace of God has not yet had to fight. But when he goes, I will be proud to stand up and say he does.

Thank you to those who have gone before and for those who have lost, thank you as well. For without them, we would have lost so much more.

Securitas ...
