A Veteran’s Day Salute

11Nov13
On my most recent road trip with strangers, I met an incredibly amazing woman whose husband is now a Veteran-in-heaven. He was days away from coming home from Afghanistan and they were in the midst of a conversation about all of the doinGood they would do when he got back. He never made it home, as their conversation was cut short by an attack. Instead of being all consumed by her grief afterward, she channeled that energy into productivity and got a foundation in her husband’s name up and running just months after he passed away. Why? Because service, be it in combat or in the community, was of the utmost importance to him and it was what he lived (and died) for. So today, I send a special salute to Yvonne, Neil, and all of my veteran friends & family who genuinely have ‘a service heart’ that makes them proud to be about something bigger. Happy Veteran’s Day!
