Here are some wise words from actor Tom Hanks: “I’m glad I didn’t have to fight in any war. I’m glad I didn’t have to pick up a gun. I’m glad I didn’t get killed or kill somebody. I hope my kids enjoy the same lack of manhood.”
Today is Veteran’s Day. It is the day we celebrate both our living and our fallen heroes of our armed forces.
I beg you to let us never forget those that have fallen, their courage and their sacrifice, and to let us keep in our hearts and hopes — always — those who are still serving us!
If this dream is to be a reality, we must all dream — and ACT — together towards its achievement!
Finally, I have a dream that one day the only courage our young will need to be heroes is: To every day choose to express loving-kindness to themselves and to others.
Call to action: Remember and hope… And if there is a hero in your life that you would love to pay tribute to, I urge you to leave a comment in their honor.
I’m pretty proud of this post, so check it out: Memorial Day: It’s a Sad Day.
