We live today with great freedoms in the USA because of what generations of others have done before us. Not just what they said or what they might take credit for, but what they have done in the act of serving this country.
We all know individuals that have served in the armed forces. Genuinely demonstrate your appreciation of their personal sacrifices today. Not just a passing thought of gratitude in your head, but an action of some form to show a veteran that you know the difference they have made for us.
Live daily under the principles that were protected in their service. This would be the most authentic action of them all.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” — Robert F. Kennedy —
