I thought it was ironic to be reminded of the selflessness of many the day before the nation set aside a day to remember the sacrifice of many.
It made me think of an American man I recently became acquainted with while traveling in abroad. He was a soldier over seas-- Iraq I believe, and he's a very disciplined and serious man. As I've observed him on Facebook, I have grown in my respect for him in both his love of family but most of all His love of God. But for all his strong words and unwavering principles, he posted a picture of himself with sitting with a smirk on his face while his two or three year old daughter put ribbons in his hair. I love opposites-- and I guess, that's as opposite as you're going to get.
To all my friends and those I don't know
Happy Veterans Day.
your your service should not be forgotten, and remembered every day.
ps) here's a link to my short film Witt's Daughter if you haven't see it... there's a theme here-- Soldiers and their families
