I am sure farmers are called to be farmers. Maybe not everyone answers on the first ring, but they’re called. I’ve said they might even be crazy to keep the hours and do the labor needed.
Today is a day to honor another group that were called. I think you have be an extraordinary person to say you are going to put your life on hold to volunteer to serve and protect our country while the rest of us go about our daily business. Maybe I should say so the rest of us can go about our daily business.
At Farm Bureau meetings I attended this week veterans were asked to stand and several, young and old, did. They were regular people working and living their lives among us. We thanked them for their service. We thanked for their time. We thanked them for answering their call.
