Thank You Note: To Our Veterans

November 11, 2010

No matter how little sense I can make of war, I am beyond grateful to those who have put — and are putting — their lives on the line in the name of defending freedom.

So on this Veterans Day, I thank you, dear veterans of all stripes, for making my relatively comfortable life possible.

You have sacrificed so much — your lives, your limbs, your loves — in order to give others hope for peace. You have suffered the stresses of war — physically, mentally, psychically — in order to lessen suffering throughout the world.

My thanks feel small in the face of your enormous contributions. But here they are, offered with genuine gratitude and humility.

In Peace,


From → Grief / Loss
