Honoring Our Veterans

MaryAnn Gaver

Especially today, it's important for us to acknowledge our appreciation for veterans. And as homeschoolers, we have the unique opportunity to cultivate that honor -- to hold our military in the highest esteem -- to teach our kids to truly appreciate those who've served in the military, and those who are currently serving, too... 

As I sat in church yesterday, I realized that I have that freedom to worship because of those who've fought so hard (some who gave their very lives) to preserve and protect our freedoms.

And I'm reminded of the great sacrifices our military makes every day in protecting America.  Plus, the sacrifices that they're families make...

So, to all those who have served our country (and those who are serving today) -- to all the military families also -- thank you. Thank you.
