It’s been a while since I’ve spewed out some thoughts on here. I’ve been randomly pondering patriotism a lot recently and I’ve wanted to write a blog about it. I thought I’d wait until all of the artificial 4th of July “patriotism” passed over. Veterans day, ironically, is much less glorified but it has more direct significance in my life. So this one is for Grandpa Hyde, Dad, and my big bro Jared who have given part of their lives to serve this nation.
