My father-in-law was lucky. His time spent serving our country was recognized and applauded ... which sadly, has not always been our country's reaction toward the many who served in the wars following.
When I think of Veteran's Day I don't think of politics. I don't think of my own feelings about any given action or war. I dwell on my father-in-law's conviction that to make a world without war we must all participate in society and do our very best ... and thinking of him, I renew my own commitment to do my part.
