When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. ~ Marcus Aurelius
Today and all days I am thankful for veterans. I can not tell you how many men and women I know who have supported our country by joining the military. They are heroes in our country and should be treated as such. In my heart, I believe in peace. In my head, I understand the need for a country to protect itself. Thank you for your service to our country, especially my grandfather, Robert DeBolt, World War II veteran my one of my heroes.
