Veterans Day

So Veterans is an odd holiday, similar to memorial day, remembering war and sacrifices and loss.  But the thing about veterans day is to commemorate the end of war and to celebrate peace.

While many realize that Veterans Day, which always falls on November 11, is a day to honor our Veterans, few realize the historical significance behind the day.Veterans Day originated as Armistice Day and marked the end of hostilities of World War I that occurred at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.

This sign bugs me.  War happens…as flippant as shit happens.  Also, no one blames veterans for doing the job they signed up to do.  And as I woman, I do love that we are thanking men.  Or is the HIM God?  I know this is church’s version of twitter, there are only have a certain number of characters, maybe they were out of Ts and Es and couldn’t spell out them. There was another flag hanging on this church not sure what kind of flag it was, but didn’t want to look too much into it;s meaning worried that we might have a white pride church just around the corner.
