If you are like me and had to schedule a Friday class, then today you are more than amplified to be able to sleep in and enjoy the feeling of a hangover from last night. However, please find the time in your day to seek out a veteran and thank them. If you really take a couple steps back and look at your life as a whole, ask yourself “what have I done for this country?” Like myself, I feel like most of the answers will be nothing. I recycle, but that’s really not thrusting our country forward.
I know so many people who wake up for 6 am PT’s, hell I play hockey with one of them, and the amount they are doing for the student body of our nation is unbelievable. If you have never surrounded yourself with people serving, now is the time to educate yourself on how different their lives are from ours. While we worry about the smaller things in life like school work, social life, and finances, they are overseas fighting a battle in the name of liberty.
I wanted to keep this short and sweet, and just wanted to show my gratuity for everyone serving our country. So to my buddy in Kuwait right now, to the guy who I will lace the pads up with tonight, and everyone in between, I just wanted to say thank you. God Bless America.
