I hope you will take time on
Sunday, Veterans Day, to remember the men and women who have taken an oath and served our country and the American people. Thank a veteran for his or her service. Take a brief pause in your day and really listen to what a veteran has to say about their experience and how they feel about the day known as Veterans Day. Get to know a veteran and get educated on veterans’ issues. Volunteer or visit a local VA hospital, lend a hand with a local veterans group or donate to a worthy veterans cause. There are numerous celebrations and special church services being held on Sunday throughout Charlotte County to honor veterans. And now that the mid-term election is over and whether you are happy or sad or just don’t care, can we just go back to being adults and treat each other with respect no matter our political views? I am just thankful I do not have to watch anymore negative campaign ads on television. (I know, but I do not DVR every television show to fast forward through the commercials) So thank a veteran, not just on Sunday but everyday, and if you’re looking for a new topic to discuss with your friends or enemies, here you go: Rhode Island, it’s neither a Rhode nor an island ...discuss.
