Daily Diary 11/11/15: Veteran's Day

Hey guys!
Happy Veteran's Day! I wanted to take a little time to talk about veterans and service today. 


If you have served in the military or are currently serving thank you from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate your service and what you have done for this country. 

I think that it's nice to have a day to celebrate Veterans, but they should be celebrated and appreciated everyday. The same goes for policemen, firefighters, anyone that puts themselves in harms way for others. I feel in life we need to start registering the sacrifices that others make more often. We live in such an egocentric era, which isn't a bad thing, but we need to acknowledge the actions of others. 

I really like the Greenlight a Vet campaign because it's such an easy way to show your support without saying anything at all. 

In this country it's easy to believe that veterans are treated well, but that isn't always the case. Sometimes they can't get jobs, they can't get their benefits right away, they come back with psychological disorders, they become homeless.... 

In general, we need to support our veterans everyday and we need to do it better. Happy veteran's day (but really, everyday should be veteran's day)!
