Happy Veteran's Day~Let's Remember Our Heroes



Some of you may have seen the photo above – it is from a Veteran’s Day ceremony in 2004. This photo does not need words. Just looking at the way this older gentleman is hugging a Marine brings tears to my eyes. This older gentleman is a Pearl Harbor survivor. The caption reads: “Pearl Harbor survivor Houston James of Dallas is overcome with emotion as he embraces former Marine SSgt Mark Graunke, Jr. of Flower Mound, Texas during the Dallas Veterans Day Commemoration Thursday at Dallas City Hall. SSgt Graunke, Jr., who was a member of a Marine ordnance-disposal team, lost a hand, leg, and eye while defusing a bomb in Iraq in July of last year.”

Let's take a minute or two today to remember the heroes who served out country. I am so proud of each and everyone of them. Let's pray for their families and pray for peace. And remember that today is not just any day,but a special one. ;-)

Happy Veteran's Day
