Veterans Day 2009

American Cemetery, Normandy, France Another Veterans Day. The wars continue. I honor the Veterans who have served and are serving in our nation's armed forces. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. Thank you to your families, who have loosed the bonds of love and let you go to serve. I mourn the loss and suffering that are caused by war, violence, terrorism and hatred. I honor the soldier. I hate the war.


  1. I'm with you all the way with this. I hate war, too.

  2. Oh, yes, I hate the war -- all of them!

  3. Yes, hate the war but honor the soldier. If we truely honor the soldier we would see they get adiquate medican and psychological care when they return. Sadly, too many our left without the needed care and resources for a meaningful life.
    NPR has been covering this issue for some time.

  4. if women were in charge of the world, there would be no wars to send our children off to...

  5. Me again. I have an award for you on my blog. Stop by and decide if you want to participate.

  6. the last line speaks volumes

    your health care post and days to remember post are wonderful!! - thoughtful and insightful and so well written

  7. Seems so hard for us humans to see the forest for the trees. Judging is something we always seem to do, no matter how much we say we shouldn't I have noticed.
    I've noticed if I just go ahead in my own mind and judge someone, I inevitably see myself peeking through.. and I wonder what good this practice could have cumulatively where it comes to all of us being so un-peaceful inside ourselves with ourselves and others. I think the end of war has to begin here in this now with ourselves.
    I , too am so aware of the suffering so many live and die daily. It sure seems that there must be a better way than war.
    I'm for it!
