I was happy to attend today’s Veterans Day Ceremony at Eno Memorial Hall.
What a wonderful celebration of all of our beloved veterans.
Today, we honor all those who have served in our armed forces to safeguard our freedom.
We remember and pray for the dead, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our great democracy.
We are also mindful of all the brave men and women around the world who are serving our country, putting themselves in harm’s way so that we can live free.
Today’s ceremony included solemn prayer, sweet music and moving reflections.
Young and old gathered as one community to pause and remember and to say “thank you” to our veterans.
Special thanks to Simsbury’s American Legion Post 84 and the Veterans of Foreign War Post 1926, as well as the Ladies Auxiliary for organizing this annual event. And to the Boy Scouts for their presence and participation.
May God bless our veterans and may God bless America! Happy Veterans Day to all!
