We Remember on Veterans' Day
Today we remember and honor those who have fought under the U.S. flag. They have often sacrificed earthly comfort and wealth and even life and limb to perserve our nation and our freedoms. Perhaps Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC said it best:
Here is a video which incorporates excerpts from several speeches in honor of Veterans' Day.
"It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag."
Also, below is a very moving music video in honor of Canadian Remembrance Day which can certainly be applied to U.S. military veterans as well. Be sure to check out Word around the Net for the story behind the song.
