Because they fought….we are free.

November 10, 2014

p0pTuesday November 11th is Veterans day.

It is the day we honor those men and woman who served in Americas armed forces so we could be free to do, say and write what we think without fear of being arrested or imprisoned.

It is indeed a sad fact that many million of American citizens will never take a moment to reflect on this as they go about their lives free from an oppressive government.

Never thinking we could be living in a country like Russia with its government controlled press or North Korea with one government television channel or China with it’s restricted internet access.

The citizens today are too far removed from the world wars of old to understand how close we came to being ruled by dictators who would control our every action.

Myself I can only say
thank you to those veterans
who made it possible for me to be free.
