Today is Veteran's Day. This is the day set aside to honor our veteran's, although I think we all feel that should be done on a daily basis. I know I would not be here today living the American dream if it weren't for the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform. I try to honor them as often as possible and am proud that I ride to Topeka each year to wave my flag and show my respect and represent them in the face of evil at the WBC compound.

We have a debt to pay to everyone who has served this country. That debt can be paid by not wasting our lives that they fought for. Live your life in a way that would make them proud they risked all to give you the chance to live it. We have the freedom to mess up, learn from it and achieve. We have the freedom to complain publicly about things we don't like and have the freedom to do what we can to change them. We have the greatest country on this planet because of our military and it's history.

When you see a veteran make sure you thank them for all you have. I love the look on a person's face who is proudly wearing a hat proclaiming their service while shopping or eating at a restaurant, when you walk up and simply say thank you. I was in line at the grocery store not long ago and was behind one of these gentlemen. I paid for his small pile of groceries and he was moved nearly as much as I was. The pleasure and honor were all mine.

I love this country and I love the men and women who have and are defending it. God Bless America!
