My Generation

Thanks and Giving: Patriots

Day 11 of giving thanks…for folks who are proud of their country.

I'm not sure why, but farmers are a patriotic bunch of people.

Maybe because they know what sacrifice is. Or because they knew someone who sacrificed everything.

Maybe because they're grateful for the opportunity to farm freely, they way they want to.

Maybe they just like seeing the flag. Because it sure crops up a lot of places, and on farms all over the country.

I appreciate that very much. And our veterans. My goodness. The veterans. Think of all we wouldn't have, were they not willing to die for it. Thankful hardly begins to describe it.
