Today is Veterans Day, which is usually filled with some measure of celebration. Parades and other gatherings will take place across the country today, some will give speeches and many will hear them. Maybe there will be music, food, and something to drink as we remember those who served as protectors of the nation. And as always, I would exhort all who read this to thank a veteran if you know one. I know that the vast majority do appreciate it, even though many are quite humble about it.
But this year as we go about our day, I would like to ask that all who can, please stop if only for a moment. Stop and say a prayer for those who are grieving the loss of the 13 soldiers at Ft. Hood. This is not a day in which those families will feel like watching a parade, hearing a speech, or hearing music blaring from trumpets and other horns. They are mourning a significant loss in their lives and deserve to be in our thoughts and prayers.
Thanks to all who read PYY, and please have a safe day.
