One Person Can Make a Difference

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”


Veterans Day, November 11, is set aside in the United Sates to give tribute to all military veterans who have served. It was originally called Armistice Day and set aside by decree of President Wilson in 1919 to remember the fallen from World War One. In 1953, a shoe repairman in Iowa headed a campaign to change the name to Veterans Day and have it give tribute to all veterans who served their country.

Thank you to all Veterans for serving and for making a difference.


 Whether it be a shoe repairman in Iowa or a carpenter from Nazareth…


One person can make a difference.
