On Nov. 11, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson stood in front of a crowd to proclaim Armistice Day, thus initiating the holiday that we celebrate today.
“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and gratitude for the victory,” he told the audience, “both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.”
Veterans Day gives us a chance to escape our normal hustle and bustle and reflect on the sacrifices of those who have gone before and will go after.
#Jelting is a lot more than wearing a stylish, comfortable, grippy belt. It's about living life to the fullest, caring about the future of the planet and giving back to those who protect our freedom.
We want to say thank you to those who fought for our freedom.
HAPPY VETERANS DAY.
