I am Humbled by a Vietnam Vet

By
Real Estate Agent with EXIT REALTY SOLUTIONS

Every year for the past 12, I am Humbled by a Vietnam Veteran.  Without fail, the telephone will ring and an acquaintance named Edwin will call and say "Edward, thank you for your service to this country."  I did serve for 4 years in the US Airforce during Vietnam but left unscathed, thank God.  Edwin however did not as he lost a leg from the knee down to a carefully placed land mine.  Our paths seldom cross since he lives in Minnesota and I in Houston..yet he calls every year.Edward Bachman Kingwood tx Realtor,

Thank you to all who have paid such a high price and without complaint or bitterness continue to love this country and it's people.  You and Edwin are true patriots!

I'm humbled by the majestic beauty of the eagle shown in your blog.  Eagles have flown at speeds of over 80 miles per hour.  And Job compared the swift passing of life to the speed of an eagle searching for prey.  Beautiful picture.
