Veteran’s Day

Today is Veteran’s Day. And it reminds us that men and women have fought for the ideals America stands for, in fact they were willing to die to protect those ideals.

When we think about the American values that our veterans have been asked to fight for, the first ones we think of are:
1) Freedom to speak our minds,
2) Equal access to the opportunity to build the lives we want for our families, and
3) Ability to engage in the decisions made for our communities through a democratic government.

We, at Southwest Key, thank our veterans for fighting for those values and ideals. We also invite you all to join us in working to ensure that the values they fought to protect are afforded to ALL of our children and that they all have equal opportunity to thrive in communities that foster success.
