|Thank you for your service and love...|
I am taking a moment today to be AWARE how blessed I am to have the freedom to create art and have the life I do in this country...
We do not need to support our governments choices but we should support our Soldiers, Veterans and their families who ensure our freedoms!
The enormity of laying one's life on the line for people you don't even know, to fight a war you may not understand or support but you signed up and you have to serve or be punished in some way..be dishonored if you don't do as you promised...To feel lonely, scared, anxious...to witness sadness, death, poverty unlike anything we have seen..humanity at it's worst...to stare at someone who hates or fears you because of the land you live on or due to your faith...To return home and hold all this in your soul so other's do not have to witness it or remember it... Well...I say a big THANK YOU...THANK YOU also for keeping my husband and those I love and do not know safe and returning him and them home to us...With gratitude I honor today!
