Veterans Day, Observed

Today is Veterans Day, and tomorrow is Veterans Day Observed. To observe is to watch, to notice, to be attentive. That is what I hope we'll do in these days -- not just focus on hearing and speaking words, but also genuinely pay attention to the soul beneath, to hear the hearts in the stories of veterans whose characters are far more complex than the two-dimensional imagery so often used to represent them.
