Veterans Day

We here at Sandrarose.com honor, remember and give thanks to the many veterans who served in the United States military.

We ask forgiveness for the disillusioned anti-Trump protesters who mock the Democracy that you committed to protect.

We wake up every morning in a free country thanks to your unselfish patriotism.

    Thank you to all the amazing veterans who served.

  • iWasteTime

    We ask for your forgiveness . Your next commander and chief is a war dodging criminal with no experience for his position.
    I pray that the choices and alliances he makes will keep us and by extension you out of conflict.

    Amen.

  • Dee

    I am so glad I have served already and not now with Trump in charge. I pray for our military personnel and their families.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm sorry if my posts about current events trouble you. There are other blogs that provide Safe Spaces for participation trophy winners like you who can't face reality.

  • Dee

    Yes we do, but at least it is something and we appreciate it.

  • Buttercup

    Thank you to all who have served and laid your life on the line for a country who won't always do the same for you.

    Only person you pray forgiveness to is GOD *bams table*

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Thank you for your Service!

    We're always giving gratitude to our vets on here.

    Some folks on here have children serving or are vets themselves.

    Again Thanks ??

  • Mmm…Okay

    Thank you to all service men and women, including both my parents and the Hubs who have served bravely for crazy women to boop on Trump signs, Colin to kneel (although not voting negated ALL of that), for BLM to protest EVERY shooting of an unarmed person of color, my right to say I don't agree with any of the crap SR posts politically and her right to respond by posting more. God bless America (We could really use it right now).

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    We ask forgiveness for the disillusioned anti-Trump protesters who mock the Democracy that you committed to protect.

    -------
    Freedom of speech. Protesters are allowed to protest just as you are allowed to post biased and misleading information on this blog.

    Come on now, you're better than this.

  • sherri2016

  • hotntot95

    I don't know about u but I'm doing my research on these elected officials and getting more involved and educated bc it's some foul shyt going on with this government for too long...I want my child home in one piece..

  • Taylordanes

    Why would a blog owner be so Vile to the very people who uplifted her and gave her a platform and praise the very people who wouldnt pay her any mind in the streets? Why keep antagonizing black people? And why do black people keep taking it...from another black woman...Sandra get help... You are really suppressing something...Keep in mind holding on to pain creates anger...Who hurt you boo???

  • RIFcantReadBlocked

    So yeah... I begged Rif10s dad not to go back to war after three tours. This was before she was born. Told him I would move wherever he wanted if he just came home. I should have left his ass in the military. Something broke him in there. The abuse was something I couldn't love out of him. Having his baby made him a better person for himself which I thank God for but, he would never be good for us anymore.
    With that said, RIF10 will make her daddy a Veterans Day card today and thank him for his service and for coming home to give her life. I will once again drop her off to his house without looking at or speaking to him.
    I think the military should be a lifetime commitment and the government should be responsible for the lives they train and the brains they wash. The civilian world is not for them anymore after some of the things the combat soldiers are forced to see and do.

  • RIFcantReadBlocked

    He openly doesn't support them. Came out of his mouth.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Thanks to all of the melanated people who fight for your country America but still has to come home to oppression.

  • Zizzle

    I don't accept thanks from treasonous non-citizens for my service. FO.

  • Zizzle

    Especially former POWs.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Thank you vets that fight for a country that could care less about you!!! Thank you from the bottom of my ?????????Cause I couldn't do it!!!

  • Liah

    Thank You!

  • RIFcantReadBlocked

    Republican ones at that.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Gives you a sister wives hug, is hard. I was married to a Marine for 15 years, crazier than a rabid racoon in your kitchen. I can't even.

    HUGS

  • Michelle

    ITS Not a democracy, it's a republic

  • YouWearItWell

    I totally understand. Went through something pretty much similar and still dealing with it to this day. And then some people have the audacity to question why people get divorced after wars... it's either that or put your kids through hell.

  • Yoni

    Says so in the pledge...".....and to the REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IS STANDS."

  • nick c

    Sandra just can't get enough of the Trump win, unsportsmanlike conduct lol.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Hugs to you RIF my baby said it made his attitude worse not better.

  • nick c

    Lol maybe it's kicking people when they are down auntie? But your right president Obama was bad about rubbing it in after his 08 win.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Amen

  • shun king

    Them vets go around the world killing tons of innocent people and when they retaliate we call it terroism

  • nucynu25

    HUGS

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    God bless those who've served and who are serving and died serving for nothing especially in 2001. Really happy that Choke 23 comes back from Afghanistan exactly when it goes in office

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Shout out to my Air Force men in my life... My bew and my father ??

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    awww look at him. Nother hug.

    Good Job Mom!

  • Taylordanes

    Its your slanted view on them that seems to demean people of color that trouble people..not the fact you are reporting it. As a fellow black woman, other people of color would rather be comforted by you and not be kicked down even more by you or your leftist views that seem to hurt people....

  • RIFcantReadBlocked

    I wasn't willing to stay. I've known dude since junior high. I don't know who he came back as. I had to love me more. Good luck to you. Xo

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Thank you ?

  • RIFcantReadBlocked

    Child yes...those Marines...

    @realsandrarose:disqus - Did you see the cover of the New Yorker?

    When we first received the results of the election, we felt as though we had hit a brick wall, full force. “The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism,” David Remnick wrote in a piece posted shortly after the announcement. “The pathos—the disappointment at waking up on Wednesday morning and not finding a woman President-elect—is undeniable, and heartbreaking,” added Amy Davidson. Our Web site is now continually updated with reactions like these, to the news of Trump’s victory. “To combat authoritarianism, to call out lies, to struggle honorably and fiercely in the name of American ideals—that is what is left to do. That is all there is to do,” Remnick concluded. And so we must go on—with words and images such as this cover by Bob Staake for next week’s issue.

    They (Marines) ain't ALL bad, lol! Married to Mister for 12+ yrs!

  • felinelurker

    Happy Veteran's Day to my fellow vets!

  • SummerBaby

    :hugs:

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Glad he's on the way back.

  • felinelurker

    I made this comment (glad I served before Trump is in office) a couple of days ago

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Thanks for sharing and hugs to you.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I wouldn't either lol

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Sandy, protesting is democracy

  • Noirluv45

    America is so hypocritical. We love to SAY we honor or vets, but that's only in word, not deed. If we truly honored them, we would increase their benefits and help them with their mental health issues (the ones that need it).

    I'm grateful for the freedom they fought for. Thank you!

  • Noirluv45

    That was an excellent article!

  • klwbaby

    Sandra I hate to break the news to u but Trump only has room for one African American in the house and it's Omarosa....Gold star for trying :)

  • Kwamella Diquan

    Right. I'm a disabled war vet and money is nothing when u come home with a physical or mental disability. We need to fight for better medical services. It takes forever to file a claim..hire more people to speed up the process. Vets survive months in a war but cone home to die! Smmfh!

  • LibraGirlonly

    Well said!

  • Kwamella Diquan

    Pray for us too..the vets. The VA system is already Phucked up..I can imagine what it's going to look like in 2 years. For the Vets who voted for Trump, hope you're satisfied.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Ahmen !!!'

  • Benita Renee’

    I feel you on that...When I woke up Wednesday morning...I cried...All I could think about was our Armed Forces..

  • Kwamella Diquan

    But we don't walk around with BOMBS strapped around our waist. We don't go on planes with BOMBS in our shoes. I'm a Gulf war veteran and it may not mean ish to u but IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN IN A WAR ZONE u kill to protect yourself and fellow soldiers. Please don't speak on ish you know nothing about. Stop reading bs on the net and watching fake ace war movies.. I lived it u didn't!

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    I salut all of the Black Veterans. The forgotten ones who have served the cpuntry and came back to nothing. Sometimes got injured and had to return to failed inssurances and can't get a job and become homeless. There are too many of them and no one is acknowedging them except a few foundation who try to bring awareness

    #HappyVeteransDay to ALL Veterans

  • hotntot95

    ??

  • Noirluv45

    Thank you!

  • BLACK *I*C*E*

    Say that!!!

  • JohnsonL

    Maybe the one thing that the Donald could do right and within the first 90 days is ship your hating, low self esteem, disrespectful behind back to where you came from!!!!

  • CapricornIce

    Happy Veterans day to my secret sugar daddy.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Thank you. Me too

  • TheRealLee

    Happy Veteran's Day. And thank you SR for the wonderful acknowledgment. BTW, have you seen video of 7 y.o. child being evicted from the home for voting for Trump. It's heart breaking and disgusting. Is CPS there yet?

  • MScommunication

    I think they should have lower taxes and breaks.

  • MScommunication

    Thanks for your service! !!!!

  • MScommunication

    Thanks for your service! !!!!##

  • Soldier Woman

    Thank you, you're welcome!

  • MScommunication

    If you are going to shout out veterans just let that be what it is. Thanks to them fighting for our rights people can assemble and protest if they want. It's disrespectful to turn this into a Donald Trump post. It's basically saying screw the vets and making their day about something else.

  • MScommunication

    I mean on this post it is disrespectful. It's like I come to your bday party and give a speech talking about protesters and Donald Trump. It's not relevant to the situation at hand.

  • MScommunication

    Agreed totally. My whole family on both sides consist of vets and I find this disrespectful.

  • hotntot95

    ??...it no time for these click bait stories.. it's in bad taste...it's real ugly

  • Dee

    Unfortunately, they were disillusioned by all of his false promises.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Thank you!!

  • shun king

    How do you justify crossing the ocean to go to somebody country and kick they door in and when they fight back you saying you protecting your self y'all dropping bombs on kids from ten miles in the sky but they are the threat man you and the rest of you kind or killers

  • Keri

    Thanks Sandra and mates.

  • Unhappy American

    ???????

  • Soldier Woman

    You're very IGNORANT!

  • Anji

    God Bless You and thank you for your services.

  • Soldier Woman

    Thank you, it means a lot!

  • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

    Salute!! Thanks

  • Anji

    Blessings to you and yours. I have a brother who put in 27 years. Only part came back. He left most of his soul in desert sand. My dad did WWII and I don't get why he wasn't as scarred. No matter how I love my bro, I don't like being around the "new" him....and he came out with Ivy league degree and great civilian bene's/retirement, but I fill in as 2nd parent to his kids and grands. He just isn't quite there. I mourn him as if he died.

  • digital_femme

    As a daughter and sister of veterans and currently active members, a simple thank you would suffice. No need to inject your self-hate even into things that should be nothing but positive. Sandra, I know that you're not from this country, so I'll school you - what you said at the end was disrespectful to our men and women in service. Do better.

  • deadellamore

    As a sister of a veteran with PTSD I totally don't appreciate your weak thanks to our veterans with shade to us anti-Trump supporters. Also, just so you know and everyone else who thinks we are delusional MY BROTHER A VETERAN AND MANY OTHER LIKE HIM WHO SERVED THIS COUNTRY SO YOU CAN SPREAD YOUR HATE ALSO DO NOT SUPPORT TRUMP!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I wonder how the military feels about having a CIC who had five deferments during Vietnam.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Wasn't it. There is more to come, the reporter from Washington Post predicted that Trump would win. He also preditcs that Trump will be impeached. I beleve this as well.

  • Luvn_it

    How could you start a moment like this off so beautifully and end it so shady and ugly. That middle part and very last line were not even necessary.

  • Milani

    We here at Sandrarose.com honor, remember and give thanks to the many veterans who served in the United States military.
    ====================================
    I stopped right there. Thanks a lot Auntie. I'm a proud woman Vet, hubby is retired Army and we're proud of our service. Thanks to all those that served, are currently serving, and my brothers and sisters in arms that have passed.

  • Torae

    I honestly could stand either canidate. But arent you a participation trophy winner yourself? And face reality? Is that what you did when Obama won? Face reality? I dont support racist, liars, or thieves... Hillary nor Donald...As, I stated before people like you are just as bad as if not worse than the people upset by Trump's win.

  • JohnsonL

    I feel that Sandra is filled with Self Hate!! Possibly, she was a victim of some sort and has never dealt with her issues. Hurt People, Hurt People!!!

  • Mrs. ??????????

    I'm glad you support the Veterans and the troops, your President doesn't. He called them a bunch of losers and lied about donating to veterans. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8f91523352ac66c8517d3181345f6ba826c12caefa3ea905836b403e2d3566db.jpg
