Take a Moment to Pay Tribute to our Veterans
Monday, Nov. 11 is a day when we will pay tribute to millions of American veterans who have tirelessly and selflessly worked to protect our freedom. Their honorable commitment to protect our country is truly humbling.
There are more than 22 million veterans who have reintegrated back into society and most likely you have a parent, child, spouse, sibling, friend or neighbor who is still serving in the armed forces or who has served. Take the time to thank them for their service and to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.
Whether you take part in a public ceremony or take a personal moment of silence, please remember the commitment they have made to keep you safe. May God continue to bless our veterans, their loved ones and this country in which we are privileged to live.
Let’s open this season of thankfulness with a moment of silence or time in prayer for our country’s heroes. I hope you’ll join me in taking a moment this Veterans Day to remember, to reflect and to recognize our veterans.
