I'd like to take a little break from snarcasm and humor today. I feel moved to do more than just "think" about our veterans today. Last week has shown us that the ultimate sacrifice does not have to be far from home. I'm sure you have heard what happened in Fort Hood, Texas, last Thursday. It breaks my heart that someone would harm other soldiers and civilians serving a country that has given us so much.
No matter how you feel about the current administration or even if you think the country is going to Hell in a Hand Basket, please be grateful today, if only for a moment. In that moment, please honor those that have died for our country and find a soft spot in your heart for the families of those killed last week and for those that were injured.
If you have served in the military or are currently serving, please feel free to SHOUT IT OUT in the comments section today and a big Texas THANK YOU for your service.
