My first ever blog is a tribute to my beloved Great Grandfather. I couldn't imagine a more worthy start. We said our final goodbye on Friday. He was the ultimate patriot in everything he did right up until his final days. His final act of patriotism was voting for Donald Trump. I write this now with the election coming tomorrow because Grandpa understood the importance of being heard in such a simple act. We are given such an incredible freedom that so many Americans take for granted or complain about or that chose NOT to vote. It is a responsibility that we should not take lightly. This choice that we make in the US will effect our country's history forever! Elections should not perpetuate hate they should spark great conversation and ideas about how to improve and set new goals for our country. This is our life! Grandpa was always up to date on foreign policy and most politics. He had a sense of patriotism that a younger generation does not understand. You do not have to hate or dislike someone just because they share different opinions. He was always up for a good discussion on politics and was always respectful. The world is truly going to miss a man like him. I know his family will.
Thank you to everyone that came and helped us celebrate Tom Nord's 94 years of life. He will never be forgotten and always loved.
