When I witness people who obviously don't fully understand either of those...or who choose to disregard them altogether, and do things that are not very honest or take complete advantage of something or someone that is being offered to them, I am offended. I'm especially offended when it is a fellow Veteran who is doing something that makes the rest of us look bad. This year there are many, many restaurants and businesses doing great things for our Veterans and providing free or discounted meals or services. While most of us aren't looking for a handout and are EXTREMELY appreciative of these generous offers, there are those who will do everything they can to milk it for all it's worth and take advantage of the kindness of others. This is absolutely appalling to me! I know that karma exists and pray that they get what they deserve, but in the mean time, I pray that they come to understand what it is really all about...that they realize that the world isn't out to get them, but instead start saying thank you and appreciating all that our fellow countrymen and women want to do for us!
God Bless you all,
