Our family is busy preparing for a camping trip over the coming holiday weekend. I'm guilty of tackling my mundane tasks without focusing on the "why" of this four-day weekend.
As we celebrate Veteran's Day this Thursday, November 11th, it's a good time to remember and appreciate those who volunteer to protect us.
Do you have a friend or family member who's a veteran or who's currently serving? I'd love to hear their story.
In the meantime, if you're feeling patriotic, check out these powerful videos:
