I have a huge need, now that the whole world has gone nuts, to release some of ,y emotional turmoil. I’ve missed writing and no long carry the fear of blogging that I’ve been carrying. I left that luggage in the lost and found and hope it doesn’t recognize me as I occasionally walk by.
Today, I went to one of my favorite places, the Dr.s office. You might think that this is a strange thing, to love going to the Dr office. Well, it really not the office per se, but the building itself. This place has a strong hold of American veterans. I love them, one and all and I will run wildly to shake the hand of anyone there who is wearing their veteran hat.
Todays victim was both Korean and a Korean War veteran, of ’53. And when I said “Thank you so much for your service” his response was one I’ve never had before. Simply “Thank you for this beautiful country.”
That truly made me proud. With all of the hate that is going on in this country now, and he’s is still great full for the life the USA has given him.
It makes me think that I should start a project where I take a pic of myself with every Veteran I thank. It’s seems like they should be remembered by someone other than family when they’re gone.
