Thank a Veteran

Take the time to say thanks to a veteran today. I am calling my father to thank him for his years of service during Vietnam. I also plan to shake the hand of any servicemen/women that I see today. Living close to an Air Force base, it's a pretty normal occurrence. Our freedom is precious and priceless and we owe it to those who selflessly follow our Commander-in-Chief and put their lives on the line to defend us.

Thank you so much for what you've done and continue to do. You make us proud to be Americans!

Victory--can you smell it?!

I cannot even put it to words (very well, anyway) how very relieved I am that Barack Obama is our President-elect. I know that some of my readers may not agree with me but I whole-heartily believe that Obama will bring the change that is so desperately needed in our country. Unity is coming, not only for our country but with the international community. The American people have come forward and let their voices be known. History has been made. It know matters not what color your skin is or how little experience you have, but rather, your plan for our country and how in tune you are with what the American people need.
