Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : Stopping by to say Thank You……..

Stopping by to say Thank You……..

Stopping by to say Thank You……..

Yesterday I happened to have a couple of hours that I wasn’t doing anything while waiting for the little lady to finish up with a doctor visit.  

St Peters MO City Hall

So I thought that I would take a trip over to the St. Peters MO City Hall and pay a visit to some old friends.

I fail all too often to stop by and say hello and Thank You to them and yesterday was a perfect time to do just that.  The sun was shining and not a cloud was to be found in the sky.

St Peters Veteran Memorial          Cannon

Is this the kind of day that I need to cause me to pay a visit to my friends?

Male Serviceman

Is this the kind of day that I need to stop by and say Thank You to those that have served our country and to those that are still serving?

Woman Serviceman

I would hope that I would be more considerate in the future and when driving by I would stop by for a visit and take the time to say Thank You.

Very nice tribute to our veterans. Thank you!

A good day to do that especially since it was the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War.  I think we can't thank our soldiers enough.

Don, this is a wonderful tribute.  We have had many family members and friends enlist and deployed overseas.  Thanks for sharing it!

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who does this. Typically I'm lucky if there is one other person. Thank you for letting me know I'm not the only one who honors the dead or keeps our active Military in my thoughts and in my prayers.

Don: It probably didn't take but an extra ten minutes out of your twenty-four hour day to stop and say thank you and visit the memorial.  We all are so thankful for the past and present service men and woman that so graciously give of themself to keep this great country secure and safe. Thank you for your kindness and we all should do the same whenever possible.

Don, we owe so much to our military/veterans. America is an awesome place to live & freedom isn't free - many gave their lives for us to keep freedom here - we should ALL remember to give thanks, as you did. Nice to meet you here on activerain!

Hi Don - A great reminder and a super tribute to our veterans.  Thanks.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) over 8 years ago

Don - we all need to stop and say thank you a little more often ..... many a young man or woman has given their all and at times I wonder if we really understand where we would be today if they hadn't.
