I am a great believer in honoring and respecting our veterans who made great sacrifices in fighting for the freedoms that this country has. It saddens me when citizens do not go up to veterans, shake their hand and thank them for fighting for our country and freedoms.

I know Veterans Day has come and gone, but that should not stop us from still showing our respect and love to these men and women who fought in wars that we didn’t agree with. They were shunned, spit on, and their lives threatened.

It is not too late to walk up to veteran, shake their hand and say, “Thank you for fighting for our country.” It is not to late to appreciate them.
