Do We Care?

 This afternoon, I met a World War II veteran while on a quick trip to the meat market. When I stopped to thank him for his service, he replied, " Well, thank you. I didn't think anybody cared anymore." After all that this man did over 70 years ago - several years of dedicated service to our nation in the U.S. Navy and stationed in the Mediterranean off the coast of Italy - after many times of putting his life in danger and probably knowing others who ultimately gave their own, it is a sad state of affairs in this country that he should feel that way. I let him know that I have not forgotten, and I could see that it meant the world to him. This weekend, whatever your plans are, please show those who serve that you still care.
