Veterans Day is hard for me, because I really don’t know what to say. The words “thank you,” just fall short.
I told my husband yesterday that history will look back on this time as a pivotal moment in our U.S. History, actually a pivotal moment in world history.
This moment we are in is a moment where we hold on with all we have to the America that was founded in 1776.
The America that believes in Individual Liberty and Freedom.
The America that believes that all men and women are created equal and should not be judged or ostracized because of the color of their skin.
The America that protects the individual’s autonomy and limits government from becoming so powerful that ultimate corruption ensues.
The America that loves God, protects free speech and encourages the individual to dream big and that anything is possible . The America that safe guards the pursuit of happiness, life and liberty.
The America that admires and encourages hard work and aspirations.
This America is, as I write this, face to to face with those who want to destroy it. Those who want absolute power, without limitations. Those who want you to own nothing, to be a ward of the state and to live without a dream. Those who hate God, those who hate family values, those who despise America’s founding and those who wish to shred our Constitution.
We have never been here before…
To the Veterans, you have not given all you have in vain, your sacrifice has not been for nothing. The “Great Experiment,” is not over – know that. You have blazed the trail. You have set a fire deep within every freedom loving American to hold on. To not let go! To give it all and never surrender. I thank you with every fiber of my being. I am so grateful to you. We stand with you. We will not relinquish what you fought for. Victory is ours if we refuse to let go!
Happy Veteran’s Day.
