From working in the insurance business we know a little about risk. We understand the risk of adding a new teen driver to your auto insurance policy. We understand the risks associated with the purchase of your new home or the risks in keeping your employees safe in your place of business. Here at Lord & Associates we understand risk and we try our best to equip you with the knowledge and proper coverage needed in order to minimalize the risks in your life, so that you and your family can rest easy.
However for all our knowledge about risk there is type of risk that goes beyond what we are able to do here. While we can aid in the protection of your homes, vehicles, businesses and personal belongings we cannot insure you and your family’s freedom. That duty has been assigned to another.
It is an honorable thing to risk your life for the ones you love; it is even more honorable to risk your life for those whom you have never met. The courage and bravery of our veterans, past and present, have provided us with the very freedom we enjoy today. Here is a letter from us to you:
Your sacrifice has provided us with the freedom we have today and gratitude does not begin to plumb the depths of what we owe to you for your willingness to fight for the freedom of our nation. Countless lives have been changed by your courage, bravery and sacrifice. You have not only influenced the lives of the generation in which you served but in each proceeding generations as well.
Your service ensured that the young boy who loved building with his blocks is now a successful engineer. Your dedication has allowed the young girl with a science kit to grow up to be a great chemist. Your bravery allows the mother of three to take her kids to the park and watch them play with countless other children. Your sacrifice has allowed teachers to listen to and encourage their student’s passions and pursue their dreams; dreams that America has made possible for them.
Because of you we have the right to express our voice. Because of you we have the ability to pursue our dreams. Because of you we afforded the opportunity for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
So today we acknowledge and honor your service and thank you for it. Veterans, you are the hidden heroes of our free nation: you are our colleagues and friends, neighbors and family members; you are the ones we run into on the street or in the checkout line at the grocery store. You are those who have served and faithfully answered the call and have now returned to live in the land in which you defended. What you have given our country is beyond our power to fully repay, yet, today we recognize our debt to your honor. And on this national holiday, our hearts are filled with respect and gratitude for the veterans of the United States of America.
Thank You From,
Lord & Associates
