For Your Country

It’s Veteran’s Day here in the U.S. A day we honor those who have put their lives on the line hoping to make the world a better place. A lot of them have gone off to war and come back mentally broken.

I asked God why he spent time with me when he could be out there putting these brave souls back together, helping them to get their lives in shape. I thought he might tell me something like, “they have their own crosses to bear, I cannot do it for them.” Or maybe, “I give them what help they are ready to take.”

Instead he told me that he hangs around me because I amuse him.

Well, God may be a selfish pig (and so am I at times), but let me at least take this moment to say, “Thanks, Vets.” Thanks for all your sacrifices and I’m sorry for all the times you’ve been put in harm’s way for stupid reasons.
