Yesterday we paid homage to our military veterans by attending the annual Veterans' Day Parade. In history, Drew and I have been studying the Civil War and World War II and how it affected our state's development. Through our studies, I've gained a new reverence for those who choose to join our armed forces. I am amazed by the ordinary men and women with families and homes and dreams and goals who become heroes by offering their physical body, their time, and their energy as a sacrifice on our behalf. So thank you to all of my friends, family, and those I will never know who chose to give of themselves to make the world a better place for me. Happy Veterans Day!
