(Day 11) Thankful for All the Veterans

veterans-day-imageToday is Veteran’s Day and I am so thankful to all the brave men and women who served our country. What makes me sad is that we give one day to honor our veterans yet they struggle to survive every day and no one bats an eye. Did you know that 22 veterans every day commit suicide due to PTSD?

We have far too many veterans that are homeless, alone, sick, depressed and it’s a shame. I pray that more will be done to resolve these issues but I am thankful that at least they do get a day to be honored although I believe they should be honored every day.
