    Veteran's of the U.S. Armed Forces

    A veteran is someone, who at one point in their life; wrote a blank check
    payable to the United States of America for an amount up to, and
    including their life. That is beyond honor, and there are way too many
    people in this country who no longer remember that fact.

    I thank my sister for this quote which, I think, says it all.
    I add my thanks to our Veteran's around the world, to give me the freedom to be here.

    Amen!! I am honored that today I have had the chance to shake hands with a large number of Veterans as we do a Veterans program here at the District I work at. All of the Vets go right past my door on the way to the Auditorium.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    A friend of mine had the same quote as her status on Facebook today! Same person? Either way it is a great quote!

    thank you.
    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
