its a healing day

this morning our dogs were abarking all night
it seems the coyotes were ahowling all night
the dogs bark as the coyotes howl

i staggered out of bed much earlier than i wanted to
i was thinking i need a lot of coffee this morning
as i looked out our large window on our 2nd story bedroom
there in the western sky
was this bright orange moon
stunning and beautiful
Image result for veterans day
then i got my coffee
turned on my computer
opened my email
the annual email from my historian brother
announcing it is veteran day today
listing then all the family members who served in the military
but as a historian he also adds historical information on the person
who served and some historical information on the wars themselves

as i started looking over the list and reading all the historical information
i realized
this is a healing day for all of us
remember half of us feel bad this week and the other half feel real good

we need a day like today
when we can all join together
to honor our vets
also to come together as one country

so lets all pause today
enjoy this day of unity
i am afraid that it may not last long
lets enjoy it

here are our family vets
several relatives fought in the civil war on both sides
several realtives fought in ww1
my moms brother was wounded fighting in the pacific during ww2
he had permanent injuries
a parents cousin was killed in ww2 at iwo jima
my three brothers served in the army and air force and air force
all during the vietnam war era
all three are now retired

two brotherinlaws seved in the military
one in the army
the other in the air force

my nephew served in the navy and retired
my great nephew served in the marines in iraq
a nieces husband served in the national guard

so our family served and we remember them today
for their service

it makes us realize what decisions our politicians make
can affect our lives forever

i as do many of you hope for peace
so those who serve do so in peacetime service
