Keller: We are indebted to our veterans

Published 7:56 am Wednesday, November 9, 2022

We will celebrate Veterans Day on Friday, November 11 and pay tribute to the men and women who took the oath to serve our country. We will always appreciate them for answering the call to serve, not only this day, but every day.

With so much to be thankful for, my heart is burdened for the condition of our country.  We are a nation divided with people who are ungrateful for America and the blessings which God has given us.

In the Pledge of Allegiance, we say that we are one nation under God.  If we really believe that, we would respect all the blessings we enjoy.  We are the greatest country in the world with half of the people doing whatever possible to destroy it.

Thank God that many people will pay tribute to the veterans who have kept us free and respect the police who try to keep us safe.

I remember something I’ve heard many times – “It’s impossible to be hateful when you’re grateful.”  Maybe the reason we have so much hatred in this country is because we aren’t grateful.

On Thursday, November 10, at 2 p.m., the Southeast Louisiana Veterans’ Home in Reserve, Louisiana, will present the annual Veterans Day Parade.  If you are interested in joining them, please line up on the street in front of the REGALA Gym.
