I thought I would just put up a short thank you to my brother, an active duty captain with the USAF, who only recently returned from Iraq, for continuing to serve this country at risk to his own life despite his personal doubts about the president's intentions. I would also like to extend much gratitude to all the parents who are serving in warzones right now and unable to be with their children this holiday. I pray they will return safely and soon to their little ones. As a still-new parent, I grieve at the thought of these people needlessly risking their lives and their children who wait for their return.
Finally, even if you're not a Dean supporter, Veterans for Dean has an open thread up starting today where you can share your thankfulness for a servicemember or veteran - I urge you to do so so that others can share in your gratitude.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and may sanity be restored to our leadership by this time next year.
