Venerating Veterans

Recently a friend confided with me that upon visiting her ailing father at a veteran's hospital, she found there to be many lonely vets. Along the way they've been somewhat forgotten. Not one soul should have to feel alone or abandoned, especially at the end of their life.

So, when said friend suggested that the homeschooling group write letters to these patients, we jumped on it. In our case we can deliver them to the priest that oversees our local Veteran's Medical Center. They don't have to be personally addressed- make them simple, showing our respect, gratitude and prayers. To look up a facility near you, click here.

And to all those who have served, men and women, young and old- thank you.
