Veterans Day

It is the Soldier
by Father Dennis Edward O'Brien

It is the Soldier,
not the reporter, who has given us freedom of press.

It is the Soldier,
not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier,
not the campus organizer, who gives us freedom to demonstrate.

It is the Soldier
who salutes the flag,
who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who allows the protester to burn the flag.

Happy Veterans Day & thank you to all the veterans....

Greetings -

You might like to know about what we lovingly call the world's premier felizine (feline magazine): Catnip Chronicles. We celebrate the joys and wonders of cats by informing and entertaining their human staff.

Catnip Chronicles is free, non-commercial, and dedicated to whatever is good for cats and their people. We are opposed to cruelty of any kind, including declawing.
We support shelters, fostering, adoption, feral TNR, the ASPCA, the Humane Society, and, maybe most importantly, education about all things cat-related.

Please look us over, grab a free subscription, and remember we're always looking for cat tales and photos. Please tell other cat lovers about us, too.

Have a purrfect day,

Kent Butler, Editor & Publisher
