Veterans

I've been watching Band of Brothers.

It's difficult to describe the feelings I have between this and Veteran's Day. One of my customers fought in WWII. The interviews at the beginning of each episode with the men being depicted in the show brings it to life more than any other method. Normandy was bad enough, but Bastogne...something about observing the cold, hunger and fear while I sit here listening to the wood burning in the stove and knit a hat; indescribable.

I find it so heart-rending to think of our soldiers, so far from home and in such dire circumstances. War is so unnatural. There is not thanks enough for their sacrifices.

A chilling story accompanied by winter weather. We take so much for granted.
