VETERAN'S DAY 11-11-11
War is wrong but the fight is right. This is a day to pause and reflect...to pull in our aligned forces of gratitude for those who serve our highest ideals in the fight for freedom.
TODAY I want to acknowledge and remember the men and women I've learned of (including my mom, pictured below), known of and some I've met here in Auburn and Opelika, Alabama through my work as a REALTOR. What a privilege I have in America---to have such an opportunity to work and encounter so many incredible people along the way. Each one is a brilliant reflection of humanity's collective struggle to be free and to have a place to stand and understand... to know of HOME on earth.
TODAY I salute the men and women who have participated in the action, to those who gave (and are still giving) of their own blood, sweat and tears to foster FREEDOM.
TODAYI am thank-full, and pray that each spirit can soar, guided by the Light that unearths remains of ancestral wisdom from the tears and terrain of battlefields.
TODAY, charged with freedom we are changed, 'from glory to glory'...from moment to moment... from soldier to soldier---each and every one... THANK YOU.
