Gratitude Quote and list for Day 12 — Veterans Day

I feel such immense gratitude for all who have served in our military.  I know that they are there, protecting us and waiting to protect us at a moments notice.  I know the sacrifices made to serve our country by the individual and their families.  I know that many serve and do not return home.  I know.  I do not forget.  I am grateful to those who have served in the past.  I am grateful to those who will serve in the future.  I am grateful to those serving now.  I’m grateful to the members of my own family who have served and are serving — my father, my uncle, my husband, my cousin, my son.  I am grateful to all those I’ll never meet who serve.  I’m grateful to all of you who support them.  You serve too, by doing that.  I am grateful to each and every one of you today and every day.  To all of you — Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  This concludes my gratitude list for today.

I couldn’t stop at one quote today.  I got this group here.

Freedom is never free.  ~Author Unknown

In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.  ~José Narosky

It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.  ~Author unknown, sometimes attributed to M. Grundler

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.  ~Elmer Davis

Courage is almost a contradiction in terms.  It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.  ~G.K. Chesterton

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
~Cynthia Ozick

    Whoa! Your statement and the quotes you mentioned were perfect. Thank you so much.

    I’m grateful my husband served (Korea) and lived to return home.

    I’m grateful he saw a different part of the world and desperate (and disparate) conditions in which a culture made do and survived.

    I’m grateful for friends whose words can move me.
