You already know I’m a complete sap. I’m strong in crisis, but put a video montage or the little kid as Darth Vader commercial in front of me & I tear up every time. The same is true at fireworks displays; as soon as Lee Greenwood’s “Proud to be an American” starts playing, my kids watch to see how long it takes for my tears to start rolling. And I sing (hopefully the fireworks drown me out a bit for those by me!), but I don’t really understand. While I’ve helped a friend study to become an US citizen, I’ve never fought for my country.
Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day. I am grateful for the men and women who were, and who are, courageous enough to protect our freedoms often in the face of imminent danger. Though patriotic, I don’t know that it’s a choice I could make.
I am proud that Favor the Earth carries over 100 items made in the USA. In honor of Veteran’s day, our patriotic Ameri-cans plantable eagle puzzle is half off. A great gift idea for a veteran; or, let kids decorate pots with flags, plant the pieces, and deliver to a VA hospital for growing warm wishes.
