A Plea…

When we visited Arlington Cemetery in August

I was reminded about how precious our right to vote is.

I thought about these heroes…

they made the ultimate sacrifice to give us

our precious right to vote.

I occasionally get a glimpse into the psyche of someone who

actually dedicated two and a half decades

of his life to give us that right to vote…

It is inspiring and sad…an oxymoron of  a courageous life…

Dedication!!!

The men and women who have given us this gift…

and asked for nothing…

Use this precious gift and vote…

to honor them…

  4. I was at Arlington in August also. Such a moving and inspirational place. Makes you proud to be and American. We should all thank a veteran everyday for the freedoms we have. It is their sacrifices that gave us our freedom. I am proud to be a nurse for our local Veterans Hospital and even prouder that the veterans choose to come to our hospital for their care, Many could go else where but many say the best care is at the VA. That makes me want to give 110% when I am at work because many of them gave all and then some. Thank you for such and inspirational post.
    Have a great week
