It's good to take a moment to consider HOW VERY, VERY LUCK WE ARE to live in a country that has elections. No matter what side you're on, or how contentious this election has been -- I am grateful to live in America, where every person, rich or poor -- black or white -- Christian, Jew or Muslim -- has the RIGHT TO VOTE.
Because Veteran's Day is coming up -- this is a good time to give another shout out to the Quilts of Valor organization...
|For the last two years, I've attended their regional event at the Quad Cities Botanical Center.|
|Last year, my husband John and my son Elliott both received quilts.|
|Terry Austin is in charge of the local chapter of Quilts of Valor|
|She gives a big hug to every single veteran.|
|Terry Austin made the two matching quilts John and Elliott received. (there is a label on every quilt).|
|Check into your local organization -- you can honor them by making a quilt, or attending an event...|
|Or, better yet -- if you want to honor all veterans -- GO VOTE.|
