Hi, my name is Patty and I love art. I was known as "keirajo" over on Fur Affinity, but I have chosen to leave that site permanently as of April 30, 2015. About my username..."Keira-Jo" was an Echidna female I created for a Sonic the Hedgehog fan club back in 1996. When the fan club disbanded I used her in fan-fiction I wrote. She's been a big part of my life for a very long time, so I often use her name or image as my avatar when I am online anywhere.
Go hug a 'Vet today.........buy them a coffee............or just have a chat with them. Although it seems this year some places are doing Veteran's Day Observed (today) to close and some places will take the actual Veteran's Day (tomorrow) to close. My Library will be closed tomorrow, so I am working today. But tomorrow will start my vacation, so I just need to make it through today. Today is my younger sister's birthday, though............so I did remember to text her this morning to wish her a happy birthday!
Our dad was a Vietnam Veteran...............so things like Memorial Day and Veteran's Day are important to me, and that's why I'm sharing a journal like this--to go and encourage people to honor those who have gone to war, combat and so forth. Risking and sacrificing their lives to try and give us a life where we are not scared of others. It's not meant to be a political statement and you may feel as you wish about things, but on a day like this I feel anyone should at least be respectful of the situations and reasons we celebrate Veterans. :)
