We are blessed. We live in a great country. Not a perfect country. The Constitution didn't promise that but it did promise to try to create a more perfect union. In fact, I won't try to paraphrase it. Those boys really knew how to write and here's what they said...
"We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
We didn't get here without huge sacrifices of many over the history of our country. I say thank you to all past and present that have made those sacrifices. All of us owe a debt to them and will continue to owe a great debt to the brave men and women of the military.
There are no words worthy so I will simply say "thank you, veterans".
