I was going to skip the prompt today. I fall into Linda’s group of people, how did she say? … “may end up leading people into touchy subjects.”
I don’t write much about veteran-type things. I come from a family that served, married a Marine, went with him when the Army sent him to Georgia, and waited for him while he was in hells I’ll never know.
I have unlimited opinions and complicated emotions about all of it, but about one thing, I am certain.
I am grateful to live in a country where incredible people are moved to serve.
I’m in the prompt because today, out in public, someone left this on my car, we assume because Bonnie Blue sports USMC plates. A random act of kindness on Veteran’s Day.
The Mister photographed the card, inside and out.
That someone would take time to write and deliver such a thoughtful token of appreciation is such a wonderful, moving gesture.
