Veterans Day is coming and this is the time I like to remind everyone how blessed we are to have our freedom. Our veterans, many who have sacrificed their lives give us the right to say whatever it is we want about the country. This is definitely one of the greatest nations to live in, even though we have had our challenges these past few years we are a great country. Every day we have the freedom to get up when we want, go to the job we want to have and come home to food on the table. There are many other countries that are not that free, so please don't forget to thank a veteran on Veterans Day. Without them, who know what you would be reading right now!
