A day for rest from school. A day off from work (depending on where you work). A day for awesome shopping deals. A day to celebrate my oldest brother's birthday.
Veteran's Day has so many different perks! But do you want to know my favorite?
It is a day where we get to celebrate the sacrifice of all people, past and present, who fight to ensure our freedom. For that I am forever grateful. Without our armed forces defending our liberty, we would cease to enjoy the freedom we often take for granted as Americans. That is the fundamental trait of this great country that allows me to have the opportunity to be grateful for everything else I hold dear in my life-- my family, my beliefs, my individuality, my home, and my ability to choose whatever I want that makes me... well, me.
Thank you, veterans.
