Thank You Veterans

Veterans’ Day, unlike Memorial Day, is for all (this world and the next) those who sacrificed their freedom at any point to secure ours.

My Promise to myself, my country, and those that I love is to not forget. Ever. I want to give pause to expose my heart and shower attention towards my veteran loves along with a poem I wrote a few years ago in dedication. Feel free to post names and service, stories, or poems about your loved ones in the comments!

Leslie discovered the power of the pen in the third grade after her family moved to a new school district. Writing became a way to sort out her new surroundings and escape to fantasy landscapes. That child, and voice, has matured into a poet, writer, blogger, journalist, online content creator and editor. Leslie is a social entrepreneur with a demonstrated commitment to community. She is an active community member in Washtenaw County (Michigan) with expertise in social media marketing and content management systems, volunteer coordination and writing and 19 years of experience in the areas of online community management, training, leadership development, and social networking. She is interested in facilitating connection with both community residents and businesses. Through this work, the economy of the community is improved and the organizations are financially successful. Her main mode of advocacy and online community, however, is through writing.
