Many of the social networking sites have a meme going around right now, that encourages people to list what they are thankful for during the entire month of November, rather than just for one day (Thanksgiving). I’m doing this privately, in my paper journal, but I may share some of these things here … if I remember … and if I have time. This one is important enough to me that I’d like to post it publicly:
I’m thankful for the warriors in my family, and for the efforts they’ve made and the risks they’ve taken so that I can be free. My stepdad Tom (Vietnam) my partner Robb (Desert Storm) my cousin Jeff (Gulf War) and Robb’s brother Shawn (on his way back to Afghanistan now). I disagree with the politics of war, but I respect our warriors.
