What is a Veteran

I was asked to speak at a Catholic school for veterans day. I hope you didn’t just spit out your wine, I mean coffee, like I did when I read the request.  4 valid reasons I should not speak at a Catholic school:

  1. I’m not religious
  2. I have colorful language
  3. I’m not a public speaker
  4. I’m not good with kids

So I told one of my friends and she said “no way”… instantly the ass hole competitive side kicked in and said “watch me”.

I agreed… had no idea what to say… I looked to my daughter for inspiration… And realized that simplicity is key.

“We thank veterans for fighting bad guys”

That was my message for the elementary kids.
