Just attended the packed Veterans Day assembly at kid #3's school. Then we had a receiving line where my husband, a dozen or so other veteran family members, and I shook hands with 400+ students, teachers, and parents. I haven't shook firmly that many hands in...well ever.
It was a honor and a privilege to stand in a line of multiple services and generations to be thanked for our service. I love Washington. I love the United States. This is yet another reminder to me that no matter the election, we need to be one nation, indivisible, for the struggles ahead and I would and still will fight for this nation still today with my dying breath.
