    It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,
    who has given us freedom of religion.

    It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,
    who has given us freedom of the press.

    It is the VETERAN, not the poet,
    who has given us freedom of speech.

    It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,
    who has given us freedom to assemble.

    It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,
    who has given us the right to a fair trial.

    It is the VETERAN, not the politician,
    Who has given us the right to vote.

    I have many veterans in my family -
    It is no wonder that they serve because they love their families -
    But veterans also serve because they love the freedoms listed above & because they "love" people they have never and will never meet -

    THANKS TO ALL

    Thanks heather for sharing that. The picture brought tears to my eyes. Thank God for the veterans that cared enough for their country and us to fight for our rights.
