There’s a lot of unrest, name calling, temper tantrums, riots, calls for violence, pontificating, blabbing, finger pointing and so on going on right now. There’s a lot of positive things happening and being said, as well. And, you know what? That your First Amendment right to do, express yourself. And, do you know why you have it? Not just the Constitution, but because of those who have served, many that have died, to protect and ensure our freedoms and rights to be a saint, an arsehole, a name-caller, a uniter, a divider.
Today is Veterans Day. I want to extend my most sincerest thanks and appreciate to all that have fought for our country or in the name of what we stand for. Without you, I wouldn’t be able to write this blog, record my podcasts, watch the television shows that I watch, taste the food I taste, drink the libations that I drink, listen to the music I listen to, read what I want, go where I want, know that we’re secure and safe and that you’ve made the sacrifice to be away from your family, in the great unknown, to make sure it stays that way.
This is not a thanks solely to those who have paid the ultimate price, their lives, that’s for Memorial Day. Today is to thank those who have served, who are serving and those who are about to serve, as well as those who have died, to protect us and preserve our freedoms. My hats off to you all, you’re brave men and women, of all nationalities, of all creeds, of all races, of all faiths, of all walks of life. I thank every one of you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for keeping me safe and for keeping my rights and liberties in tact, whether you agree with me or not.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
