Today is Veteran’s Day, which means a day off for many– but of course far more importantly it is a day to remember those who have served our country in our military, as well as their families and extended families who have made such significant sacrifices. I know readers of this blog don’t need to be reminded on any of this, but two things I suggest if you aren’t already on them. One is to share with your children why they are off from school today, why we celebrate Veterans Day, and describe in general the sacrifices that are and were made by our troops and military families on their behalf.
The second suggestion is that you consider clicking HERE and making a donation to one of these charities which support our veterans. I’m going to navigate there and do so as soon as I complete this post, and I hope you will do so too!
