    November is time to be thankful. Thankful for the wonders of the harvest and thankful for the veterans who defend our way of life. I’m referring to Thanksgiving and Veterans Days, obviously. These two nationally holidays were meant to remind us of the blessings we have, living here in this amazing country.

    Thanksgiving Day is more than food, family, and football. It is about the gathering of friends and loved ones to share a moment in time and reflect on those things that we are thankful for. It is about forgetting what makes us different, setting aside our trespasses, and remembering what brings us together. Try celebrating this day with charitable giving and find time to serve others. Volunteer by helping feed the homeless or simply donate food to a local pantry. Bring the spirit of thanksgiving into the lives of those less fortunate and see what the miracle of the harvest can do for them and you.

    Veterans Day is a time to honor and say thank you to all veterans especially those serving and protecting our country today. We live in a free nation, because of them. Military service is not just about honoring our God and country, it is about preserving our families, our democracy, our way of life. We must also remember that it’s not only the veterans but their families as well, who have sacrificed considerably. I’m reminded of a thought-provoking statement by an unknown author who said, “Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it… it flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it”. To our men and women in the service of this country, thank you and God bless you.  

    One way you can honor those who safeguard our democracy is to vote. That too will happen this month, so let your voice be heard.
