    Is freedom ,Thank you my veteran friends , I'm not sure why but some people just seem to spend thier freedoms  like there's no tomorrow , While on the other end of the spectrum , those who have paid the most for it simply must be shaking thier heads in disbelief !   Today I honor the Veteran !  , If you know one please tell them how much you appreciate what they have done  , I am going to call on my favorite ones  and tell them today !  Will You too ? In spite of our differences in political veiws  , no matter how you feel about wars or freedom . We have a duty an honor and a priveledge  to say thank you for your service ! Will you join me ? This image below i, I find offensive and disgusting !  And yet it seems to be the new norm , I remember when it was illegal and being illegal _ it meant something !

      Well said.  And yes, I have made the calls to my veteran friends and children.

    Veterans come from all over the world, not just the US. We are also honouring our veterans in Canada today.

      You know, Susan, that's a good point.  I had no idea that Canada even observed a day honoring vets, not to mention that it was on the same day as ours.  Tell your vets thanks as well.

          You know, I think we're so stuck in our nationalism sometimes that we forget there have been WORLD wars.  A sincere thank you should be offered to any and all men, women, and families who have sacrificed their lives for true freedom and liberty.  So sad that we forget that people are the same all around the globe.

    I think those of us that genuinely care and respect the occasion - honor all veterans and their sacrifices made, irrespective of where in the world we are and live.... so All the best to you and yours on this Remembrance Day....

    thank you to all Veterans who  are responsible for what we call freedom today. The political correctness of our present society has constantly been eroding all that these patriots,  present and past have fought and died for . The American way is under constant attack from those who would seek to bring us down. If not for those who have and  (the younger generations of Americans), who will give a part of their lives (and in some cases their lives) for the  freedoms we currently enjoy. We  salute you.
    God Bless you and your families who support your sacrifices for Our country .  God Bless America .

    I agree with you that veterans must be honored everywhere. Nicely put and we must never take freedom for granted.
