Thank You to Our Most Important Citizens
It's Veterans Day. If anyone deserves a day, it's our veterans. Those who have risked or even given their lives so that we can live a life of freedom. Hell, our veterans deserve more than just a day. Maybe a week, or a month, or a year. Or every single day of every year.
It's been quite a year. Last year I had the honor of sitting in a room full of veterans when the radio station put on a dinner for our Vets Who Rock program. It was humbling, to say the least, to hear the stories of bravery, selflessness and compassion. I have never been around so many people I admire all in one room all at the same time. People who fought for our freedom. People who have been to war, watched their friends die, and still come back to civilian life and make a difference.
This year I had the honor of meeting and making friends with Commander Tom Zerhellen. Tom is a Marist professor and a veteran. He spent his summer walking across America to bring awareness to veterans and the problems they suffer. Homelessness, depression and so much more. Tom is quite a guy and I'm honored to call him my friend.
Is thank you enough? No, it's not. But it comes from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for our freedom. Thank you for showing me what true bravery is. And thank you for allowing me into your lives, and letting me see what it really means to be a hero.
