Enjoy this holiday. Take the time to kick back, relax from the hard work you’ve been doing, and just goof off for a bit.
While you’re doing that, though, do something else, also. Invite that veteran in your neighborhood, who came back from his service wounded or maimed, and his or her family, to your celebration. Invite the family in your neighborhood whose veteran was killed in his or her service to your celebration. They need the break and the relaxation and the support, also. And they’ve earned your thanks.
