Honoring the veterans

November 9: Holiday: Veteran’s Day

Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays (a Photo or Writing Challenge)

Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere who bravely bears his country’s cause, honor also to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves as best can, the same cause”

Abraham Lincoln


War is never a welcome option

Armies built by conscription

Soldiers fighting on beachhead,

Fronts, and in deep trenches

Lives sacrificed by millions

So that citizens live a free life


The soldier is the army, no army is better than its soldiers. The soldier is also a citizen. In fact the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country”

George S Patton


I hope that we don’t have to go to war ever again

A war, justified or imposed upon the people is always tragic

Loss of lives, families torn apart and futures destroyed

But if we are asked to defend our homeland, we all will rise

With pride we will bear arms and stand united against the enemy


I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented”

Elie Wiesel

The silence of people who can do something is much more damaging than the verbosity of those who can’t.

  1. “The silence of people who can do something is much more damaging than the verbosity of those who can’t. ” this line gave me chills….look to history and you will see the scary truth of this statement. Wonderful tribute, Sadje! 💞💞💞

  2. Couldn’t agree more Sadje, war should always last resort but there are times when they are necessary. It is in those times that the brave give their lives to history and they deserve to be honoured for the sacrifices they made in the name of freedom.

  3. As hubby pointed out to me there are two common solutions to inflation – disease and war. I suspect both might be considered feasible in some circles
