Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Veterans Day


Here in the states November 11th is a day reserved for honoring our veterans.

“May their rememberance be as lasting as this land they honored.” – Daniel Webster

There’s a National Cemetary near me where I sometimes wander, reading the markers and contemplating matters.

“We don’t know them all, but we owe them all.” – Unknown

It’s a beautiful place no matter the season, but it’s particularly beautiful when it’s decorated to honor those buried there.

“Here men endured that a nation might live.” – Herbert Hoover

On this Veterans Day I will remember those who served our country.

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” -Joseph Campbell

I hope those of you here in the US will stop for a moment and think about them too.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.
