I want to start by saying a heartfelt THANK YOU to those who served and continue to serve our Country
I was not born in the U.S. but I take pride in being a U.S. Citizen
And with that, I try to learn as much as I can about its history.
So here are some facts I’ve learned that you may or may not already know:
- 2 million veterans are women
- Of the 16 million Americans who served during WWII (1941-1945), about 620,000 are still alive
- There are about 21 million military veterans in the United States
I also find it so important to thank our veterans regardless of what day of the year it is.
Whenever you meet a veteran, please thank them for their service.
It’s the least we can do to show our respect and appreciation.
In banking, I’ve had the privilege to get to know so many people from various backgrounds
People from all over the world.
And out of those wonderful beings, I’ve had the pleasure of hearing many stories
Including stories from veterans.
And it saddens me so much to see the amount of HATRED we are seeing with this election
Because one party didn’t get their way.
The amount of VIOLENCE we are seeing
It’s truly embarrassing & shameful how this Country is dealing with the outcome of this election
I hope at one point, we can all come together as one to make this Country better than it already is
We have a lot of work to do
And one president will not solve it all. That’s for damn sure.
But TOGETHER, putting our differences aside…
We CAN make this Country one that our veterans would be PROUD of.
Thankfully, I think we all want peace.
We just need to learn how to send that to others by our own actions.
Honestly, a simple smile sometimes will do.
Other cultures that are being judged and many times “looked down” on, fear simply taking a walk on a Sunday
I always make it a point to smile and say “good morning!” to those who least expect it
And not surprisingly, they are always shocked by an act of kindness by hearing a simple “hello”
It’s so unusual today.
FEAR has taken over our hearts.
Now, enough of me venting to you guys!
I’m sure you hear enough about this on Facebook 😉
Let’s get HOLIDAY inspired!
I was SO FREAKING EXCITED to share this look with you 🙂
This winter coat is EVERYTHING
And the red heels with a bowl? I mean, *insert jaw dropping reaction here*
I can’t deal.
I wore this coat under faux leather leggings (YESS! Pleather is my newest obsession can’t.get.enough)
I think my cat woman outfit from Halloween is to blame. 😉
Wear this if you want to make a bold statement this holiday season.
And please, spread love not hate.
Have a great weekend loves!
