I am grateful for honor.
On Veteran’s Day I am grateful for the honor to acknowledge the men and women who serve our country. My father (left) was in the Army.
Mother’s first husband and her beloved high school sweetheart did not survive. Photo and announcement below. He was killed in Belgium when his hospital got hit.
The concept of honor is about distinction, service, dignity, prestige, cachet and so forth. A superior status or even a dignified stance is implied synonymously with the word “honor.” Honor implies integrity and has cultural value. Is the concept of honor relative to one’s background and geographic location only?
The famous statue of US soldiers on Iwo Jima featured Native American, Ira Hayes.
Personally I am a pacifist, but that is a topic for another time. Thank you, veterans!
