Thought to Ponder - Veteran's Day

As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget
 that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
 but to live by them.
 ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

You are so right about that! I am one of those who thanks our troops every time I see them. I am normally a bit on the shy side but when I see anyone in the uniform I approach with hand out and thank them! They make a sacrifice I do not, they fight when I can not so I need to make sure they know I appreciate and honor their courage!

Great message I wish everyone would 'live' it!

That statue is a beautiful modern-day Pieta.

thanks you for thinking of our Vets. I am married to one, daughter to one, Niece to one, Step-mom to one, SIL to late BIL who was a vet...numerous friends of my children.

This is a wonderful, wonderful memorial (probably even more appropriate for memorial day) but it sooo moved me. Where is it, and does it have a name?

Thank you,
Susan
