Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF – Veteran’s Day


As the ashes of the election are being swept up I think it is time to pause and remember those who make the democratic process possible no matter how far afield it goes.

The men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice should receive our thanks, today and a prayer for their lasting peace. Those still serving and those who have served deserve our gratitude for the freedoms we enjoy. Today’s JohnKu is in honor of all who have served.

We wake to free air,

We sleep soundly without fear. . .

Uniforms insure.
