Say “Thank You” to a Veteran

Say “Thank You” to a Veteran

“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope. That ripple builds others. Those ripples - crossing each other from a million different centers of energy - build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and injustice.” - Senator Robert F. Kennedy

PEAK Parent Center thanks each and every Veteran who has served our country honorably in wartime and in peacetime. It is because of your service that citizens of the United States are able to live with liberty and justice and we want every Veteran, of all eras and branches of service, to know how thankful we are.

PEAK is proud to call Colorado home, and Colorado is home to many military bases. Because of this, we strive to provide specialized outreach to military families of children with disabilities. If you are, or if know of a military family who has a child with a disability, we encourage you to contact one of PEAK’s Parent Advisors whenever you need support!

With service comes sacrifice, something that Veterans and their families understand all too well. This week, in honor of Veterans Day, and every week for that matter, we at PEAK salute all Veterans and the families who have served loyally along side them. Your service truly does send ripples of hope for our country’s future.
