This past Veteran’s Day I attended my church’s evening service honoring our military veterans as I do each year. As always, it was a wonderful service with a lot of patriotic music. Veterans attending often wear or display something to reflect their branch of service. This year, I promised myself that I would not let tears form in my eyes, which is what normally happens when I think of all the men and women who have served our country and are currently serving it. I also think about the countless other service organizations and people who have careers that serve the public like police officers, fire fighters, teachers and health care providers. Once again, I failed to keep my promise and tears flowed during the service.
