for Veterans and for America, too

I am glad that Veteran's Day falls in November. Because I am trying to make more of an effort to be grateful this month, I give Veteran's Day more thought than I otherwise would. Both of my grandfathers and Mike's grandfathers served in the military, but it is not something I think about often. We went downtown to watch the parade, hoping to feel the spirit of this day a little better. There is something so American about marching bands and small horses and girls with batons parading down the streets. I loved it. But mostly I loved that it made me stop and think about the service and sacrifice of so many families to protect this nation. I left the parade feeling more grateful, for their sacrifice, and for my citizenship in this land.
