More than likely, unless your job involves essential services such as being a convenience store employee or Walmart greeter or, apparently, a freaking college football blogger, you get some time off for the Veterans Day holiday, unencumbered from the chains of employment.
As you go about your non-work Monday and enjoy the freedom from the constraints of your occupation for but a brief moment, take a minute or two or 10 to remember exactly why you have the day off. And why you have the freedom to do to pretty much whatever the hell you want this and every other day.
Thank you, veterans. Thank you for your service, your courage and your sacrifices, especially those who paid the ultimate price. Suffice to say, a mere thank you is not nearly enough, but it’s all we’ve got.
CFT salutes all of the veterans past and present for what you’ve done, what you do and what you’ll continue to do for all of us.
