November 11 was originally proclaimed as Armistice Day in 1919 as a commemoration of the armistice between the Allied nations and Germany at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to cease hostilities and bring about the end of World War I. Now we remember all Veterans and the peace that they help preserve and bring to our country.
Today is a day to say Thank you to the Veterans that served and are serving our Country. At 11:00 am today there will be a moment of silence held all over the country to remember current and past Veterans. Today is day to be thankful for those men and women who serve our country so that we can live free.
Each time we have a military type holiday, I am reminded of why our country was began. It was for religious freedom, and as I have heard many say"religious freedom" loosely. It was definitely founded on God, the one true living God and not any other.
Thank you. Thank you for your service, for your bravery, and for your time. To some, thank you for your life. Freedom isn't free, but I am grateful I get to live free.
