11-11-11 Haiku: It's About The Vets

11-11-11 Haiku: It's About The Vets

It's not about fries
Remember to thank a vet
Today is for them

 

Yes, we know. It's 11/11/11 and later this morning it will be 11:11:11 11/11/11. McDonald's is using the date to market their famous french fries, selling a small order for half the usual price.

 

A horror movie titled (of course) 11-11-11 will be released today.

 

And the "lucky day" has led to increased sales of lottery tickets.

 

If you just can't get enough about this "singular" event, let me Google it for you.

 

But most importantly, today is Veterans Day. So think about those who made the ultimate sacrifice. And when you see a vet,  be sure to let them know you appreciate their service.
