Bee all you can bee

This morning, my son said he doesn't want to go outside to play because there's a bee there. I reminded him that all of the bees are outside. After explaining to him that the bees don't want to sting you because they will die, I realized the correlation to today's holiday (Veteran's Day in the USA).

Soldiers fight to protect their country and keep its residents safe. They don't want to die either, but will do what it takes to win the battle with the understanding of a collective benefit. Happy Veteran's day and thank you. I am grateful to those members of my family and friends who have served (and are still serving) to protect the freedom I enjoy daily.
