With the passing of Hurricane Sandy and the mid-week Nor’easter storm, many routines, traditions and normal day-to-day tasks have unintentionally been overlooked, canceled and even rescheduled. This weekend, Sunday, Nov. 11, is Veterans’ Day. Many organizations, schools and municipalities are maintaining their scheduled observances.
It’s easy to forget or not take a few minutes to observe, while trying to get back to normal after displacement and disorientation. Being able to recover quickly and establish some sense of normalcy is one of the great characteristics of many veterans. The sooner we get back to some routines, the easier it will be to recover from the regional weather mess. This Sunday, if you are able, thank a veteran or even extend a gracious gesture.
