My kids have been taught that super-heroes do exist.
We occasionally see them in the mall, in Costco, in church.
Some are retired, and some are currently working their super-hero duties. Some live here, and many, many live far away.
No matter how far away they are, or how long ago they held the title of "active duty super-hero" they are still heroes, and they protect us every day. We would not be able to live the lives we do without their sacrifice and their willingness to do the job.
Instead of capes, they wear fatigues. They prefer not to wear masks, but can sometimes be seen in dress blues.
Today, I'd like to say Thank You to all the men and women who have ever served our country in the military. Thank you for your sacrifice. Thank you for putting your life on the line so that I can tuck my kids in bed at night and know that they are safe. Thank you for the ability to attend church with my family, and for the ability to say whatever I want, whenever I want without persecution. Thank you for our freedom, and thank you for our lives.
Happy veteran's day!
