As it's veterans day I find myself thinking of my father and grandfather who were both veterans who served in the Vietnam War and World War II respectively. I thank God that they lived and that my dad is still living, not just because without them I wouldn't be here, but also because they, like many veterans inspire me to want to be a better human being. The idea that people are willing to risk their lives so people like me can live freely is very humbling. I will continue to strive to be a better person as I think it's one of the best things I can do to honor veterans. If only so that I can live up to the standard of bravery and dedication that veterans showed throughout their time in the armed forces. If you read this and you're a veteran I want to tell you thank you very much for your service and that I'm very glad you came home!
