We often quote Edmund Burke and say, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
But he also said it this way, "All that's necessary for the forces of evil to win in the world is for enough good men to do nothing."
Because even if some good men are doing as much as they can, evil can still triumph if there are not enough of them.
I pray that there are always enough good men who will rise.
Who will go.
Who will do.
On this Veterans Day, I say thank you to those who have risen.
Thank you, Dad (Vietnam War). Thank you, Grandad (WWII). Thank you, Grandpa Ted (WWII). Thank you, Dave (Desert Storm). Thank you, Great-Uncle Dean (sacrificed his life on the beaches of Normandy). (sacrificed his life on the beaches of Normandy).
Thank you to my husband, who currently serves.

It is so good I wanted to post it again today.)
