Happy Veterans Day

To those everywhere that have sacrificed and served. My grandfather. My Uncle. My father. My friend.

A Nation's Strength

Not gold, but only man can make
A people great and strong;
Men who, for truth and honor's sake,
Stand fast and suffer long.

Brave men who work while others sleep,
Who dare while others fly --
They build a nation's pillars deep
And lift them to the sky.

-Walt Whitman
