TODAY

Today my father died. He won the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of two soldiers who were liberating the concentration camps of Germany, so no more innocent people would have to suffer at the hands of tyranny. He gave his life for freedom, and asked for nothing in return but respect. He was a veteran.

Today my mother died. During the Korean war she was a nurse. She was awarded many medals but all she wanted to do was help ease the wounded's pain. You see, they were there so you could have the honor telling everybody about your rights as a free American. All she wanted in return was respect. She was a veteran.

Today my son died. He served proudly in Vietnam. He was wounded twice. He was awarded the Navy Cross. He served there so you could joke about how stupid it is to join the military as you burn the American flag. All he wanted in return was respect. He was a veteran.

Today my uncle died. He was fighting terrorists in the Middle East. He died alone and suffered for hours at the hands of his captors. As they beat him to death they laughed and told him how great their god was. Pray for him the next time you worship in the church of your choice. You see the blood he shed gave you that right. All he wanted in return was respect. He was a veteran.

Today my Grandfather died. He died alone in a nursing home. He could not speak because his voice box was destroyed by poison gas in World War One. As he tried to speak they called him an old senile man, He wanted to pass on his purple heart to someone who cared. Think about him the next time you boast about your right to free speech. All he wanted in return was respect. He was a veteran.

Today is Veterans Day. When you think about who gave you all these rights, walk into the veterans home and see what the veterans gave. Take a stroll in the cemetery, But walk softly because they are resting and they are in Gods gentle hands. Close your eyes and listen to how free you are and then ask yourself, "What have I given to the Veterans?''
