Thank A Veteran

We blogger types spout off on issues from all points of the political spectrum – and we do so without fear. We do not fear a knock at the door in the middle of the night; we do not fear losing our jobs; we do not fear having our families threatened. In many places around the world, though, people would not dare contemplate expressing their opinions in the manner that we routinely take for granted – just glance at the headlines.

I think that we, as a society, frequently forget that freedom such as this in not the norm in the world, nor has the freedom of political expression been the norm throughout history. Regardless of your politics, find a veteran and express your thanks for the freedom that we have.
