“All gave some, but some gave all.”
Thank a veteran today for the freedoms you enjoy. Every day is a veteran’s day – if you don’t believe that, ask a mother who has lost her child, or a husband who has lost his wife, in the name of combat for service to this country – but this day is the one we choose to recognize their sacrifices in the US. Ignore the sales in the retail stores and see today for what it is.
I have a post started for shortbread (part of my OBG box, which will be shipped late, sad to say), but for now, this is the only thing that matters today.
