  1. I would like to say thank you. To every one of you. I dont understand what we, America, did to deserve your protection. I would like to thank you for fighting for us. I dont think I could do it. Everytime I see all armed forces I just want to run and give you all a big hug. You are my hereoes and I hope you have a great new years and every holiday to come. Thank you and I love you all armed forces and Americas heroes.

    • Randi, Thank you for your kind words and wishes. We’re all working hard, each in our own way, to advance the development of human rights, dignity and social propriety in this seemingly chaotic, hard-to-get-a-handle-on world of ours.
      Best wishes for peace and prosperity in the New Year, to you and yours, and to mankind.
