Tanks A Lot

TANKS A LOT

 

Today is the last day in May. These tanks were on display where the Flower Mound Memorial celebration was held along with the Flower Mound Fire Engine that proudly displayed the American Flag. Freshly still on my mind is, tanks a lot

 

What can I say about these Military tanks, except they represent the following:

 

  • Freedom
  • Security
  • Envy

 

Most people understand how important it is to have freedom and security. For this blog post, my emphasis is on envy. Meaning, there are many people from other countries envious of American freedom, security, power, material advantages, way of life, and for the ability for many people to own property. Recently, I traveled to different parts of Europe and quickly realized how few people own homes. Thinking about my own upbringing in Chicago, known then, as the melting pot for immigrants, many people who were lucky enough to own shared their home for the benefit of multi-generations or to acquire wealth. For example, as many as four families occupied the entire building with four separate flats for other family members, or to collect rent. Maintenance was a shared responsibility. Fast forward to 2018, America is fast becoming an even more desirable country and many are hungry for that slice of American Pie.    

Today, thanks to the competitive way of life, better education, higher wages, and investment opportunities, many people own their own homes. Also, many have found ways to build wealth by acquiring equity in their homes and moving approximately every five years to other locations and different homes. People in America readily exercise, their right to freedom when they choose their own location based on lifestyle, wealth, and means. 

 

Whatever history has in store for us, let us be grateful to live in a country of the brave. Home ownership is a choice, an honor, and a privilege. All I can say now is, tanks a lot to our U.S. Military.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - To think Americans can enjoy the fruits of their labor, and it is all because of the sacrifices made by so many young men and women who went to battle. The role a soldier plays in achieving freedom is something one can't just charge or pay for by cash or credit. Freedom does not come freely. We need to take our focus off all the naysayers and political apathy.
