As we head towards Veteran’s Day, I am grateful for the brave men and women who have served our nation, and continue to defend our freedoms and protect us all over the world. We live in a country that allows us to express ourselves openly, to assemble in faith, to vote our conscience, to speak our minds, and to share our hearts without fear of government oppression. We can choose to live a life unlike anyone– anywhere. We can choose any path for our lives– and achieve, excel, and work towards living our dreams. We’ve had our share of difficulties, but we have always persevered and overcome them…and we will again. The United States of America–there is no place better. God bless our veterans!
