…… veterans and 11:11


Veterans Day

There are many veterans in my family and I am proud of each and every one of them. My father was in the Coast Guard so I have a special feeling for that branch.  With this in mind I wish a Happy Veterans Day to you all.

Eleven Eleven

Legend has it that the 11th day of the 11th month is a special day. One in which it is advantageous to make wishes. So here’s your chance….. Post your wishes here (and make them good ones).

My wish is that we move closer to ending poverty, violent unrest, destruction of the environment and distrust among people .

Here’s my song “Eleven Eleven”.

I’d love to hear your wishes…  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your friendship and support.

“Honoring the sacrifices many have made for our country in the name of freedom and democracy is the very foundation of Veterans Day.  Charles Rangel

As always I am Musically yours,
