Not-So-Wordless Wednesday - Veteran's Day - November 11, 2020

I am so very thankful for our veterans...those that, down through the ages, have, unashamedly and without apology, served our nation throughout its history and in times of their all...and, in some cases, their very lives...that we may be free. 

To all those veterans out there I shout out a great big..."Thank you!"

And even though all of them have passed away and are no longer with us, a very special 'thank you' is whispered to the memory of my great-uncle, Mick (Milton Fox), uncles, Clifford Brown, Howard Brown, J.B. Graham, and Donald Adams, and to my husband's uncles, Art Cuda, Al Cuda, and Jack Clark for their years of service during WWII. 

My Great-Uncle, Milton ("Micky") Fox

And let's not forget all those who lived, fought, and died before them to give us the freedoms that we enjoy today in this great and glorious country...the United States of America!

God bless veterans and always! 

Freedom Speech from "Braveheart"...

"I am William Wallace. And I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny! You have come to fight as free men. And free man you are! What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight?"

"Two thousand against ten?" - one shouted - "No! We will run - and live!"

"Aye!" Wallace shouted back. "Fight and you may die. Run and you will least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives but they will never take our freedom!"


Until next time...
