Honoring Our Veterans and Our Elections

News Staff's picture

With Election Day behind us and Veterans Day in front of us, it is a good time to think about “honor,” whether that means honoring voter decisions or honoring those who have fought for our great nation. These two significant days of our year present us with an interesting timeline. On Tuesday, we face the election results cheering if our candidates win. Over the next few days, we begin to shake off our “winner/loser” attitudes and move forward. And on Monday, we will pay tribute to all of the men and women who have served in the United States military services that protect our great nation.

Election Day and Veterans Day are inextricably linked. Our soldiers protect our democracy and its values, including the right to vote. It is as simple, and as complicated, as that. Veterans fight on our behalf. On Veterans Day, we celebrate their service and their dedication to our country.
