Who I Respect the Most
Most of us give an enormous amount of admiration and respect to certain actors, musicians, professional athletes, and big shot CEOs. At times, I do, too.
But the true respect should go to the real heroes of this great country, our veterans. No other group has paid a higher price for our freedom and our ability to pursue our dreams and the dreams of our families.
This country wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for the millions of veterans who died for us. And the millions more who were severely wounded on the battlefield … physically, psychologically, and often both.
The veteran I respect most is my grandfather, who is pictured below (far left) in a Veterans Day ceremony in November 2005. He’s no longer with us, but my family thinks of him daily as we enjoy the freedoms that he fought for in World War II when he served in China & Burma Theatre in the Army Air Corps.
Who do you respect the most? Is there a veteran in your life? Feel free to share your stories.
