I was looking for a a good quote for Veteran’s Day and I found so many that spoke to me that I had to include them all.

Thank you so much to all the service men and women who have served, and are serving our country.

~As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

~We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. ~Cynthia Ozick

~How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! ~Maya Angelou

~When eating bamboo sprouts, remember the man who planted them. ~Chinese Proverb

Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die. ~G.K. Chesterton

All quotes are taken from this website.

Hug a veteran today if you can!
