Post election, we should be proud that we performed our duty as citizens, exercising our right to vote. We voted for national leaders, local leaders, judges, referendums, amendments, statutes, ordinances, and more—but the important thing is that we were able to vote.
The ability to vote reminds us of the freedoms that we enjoy everyday in this wonderful country, that of which were preserved through the sacrifice of our people. Our current servicemen/servicewomen and veterans are true heroes.
The experiences and thoughts of a soldier are difficult to describe in words. Art offers an opportunity to express opinions in a universal language. Poudre Studio Artists & Galleries is featuring art by veterans and about our military and country in their exhibition, “Freedom Isn’t Free.”
The show honors those who serve or have served, and gives tribute to the very ideal they fought for. Veterans day is on November 11th, but we must not limit our appreciation and memorial to a single day. Remember our veterans and celebrate them in every way possible.
