I’ve been blogging about the Kardashian divorce for the past week, not because I am personally fascinated with this couple, but because so many people follow the comings and goings of this reality TV star family.

Today is Veterans Day, a day to honor the men and women who have served in the U.S. military. I don’t take this day lightly as my brother gave his life for our freedom and my 90-year-old father is a surviving WWII veteran.

We honor you this day.
