Veteran’s Day

Today I’m lighting candles and saying a prayer for all our veterans.  The challenges faced by veterans and their families are ones you and I can only imagine.  Many of them have physical and mental disabilities which are a direct result of their military service.  After serving,  many military men and women return home and find it difficult to secure employment or find that their families have suffered hunger or homelessness in their absence. There are approximately 67.000 homeless veterans in America.  They comprise 12% of the homeless population in our country.
