Once Again, Amazed by Windsor

Commentary by Jacqueline Bennett

For twelve years I covered the town of Windsor, Connecticut as a reporter for the local newspaper, and, it is a community for which I have an abiding affection. The activism, volunteerism, caring, compassion and depth of character among so many of the people with whom my path crossed here in Connecticut’s oldest town never ceased to amaze me.

And once again I am amazed by Windsor. This time by Windsor’s veterans who have given so much of themselves in service to our nation, yet this Veterans Day looked beyond their own contributions to recognize the patriotic deeds of someone who is not a veteran, by welcoming her as the main speaker for their annual observance – quite deservedly – as told in the newsandviewsjb Nov. 11, 2011.

How very magnanimous of these veterans. How very Windsor!
