This nation that we call America has its flaws, we all can agree with that. We are not a perfect nation, but we strive to always become a more perfect one.
Many people...far too many...are living in poverty, cannot find work, are not treated equally and fairly in the court of law or society, cannot afford a quality education, and live in unsafe neighborhoods.
But as I sit here today, as a free American, I know that my freedom comes from the restless and relentless actions of our brave Men and Women of this nation's armed forces.
Today is a day where we celebrate the countless Americans who fought for the idea that freedom is something worth fighting for...worth dying for.
As a grandson of two veterans, I know the dedication it takes for a person to answer the call to serve our nation!
For that, I thank them for their service!
Happy Veterans Day to all those who have sacrificed so much for their nation!
