rst_1008-8Coming just three days after our tumultuous national election, Veteran’s Day observances sent a clear message to one and all about the roles of honor, diversity and patriotism as they really exist in our nation. They start in the hearts and minds and intentions of all of us who make up this great land. God Bless America.
