I've changed the blog again. Change is good, right? Monday is Veteran's Day. I think that many people look at it as a day for the kids to be out of school. To hit some great "Veteran Day Sales" at some of the department stores. It doesn't seem to have a lot of meaning for a lot of people. But it should.
I don't know how to honor the men and women who have served or are serving in our military. How do you thank them for leaving their homes and their families and facing horrors that most of us will never know? How do you thank the families who lost loved ones in the war? How can they ever be repaid? I don't know how to do it.
So, in my silly bloggy way, I'm going to try. I changed the banner. It isn't much. But it's something. I'm also going to pass on blogging on Monday. I won't be reading or writing. Kind of my moment of silence in cyber space.
If you have family or friends who have served or are serving now, tell them that a stranger in Southern California says "Thank you." And if you yourself have served.... thanks.
