I’m going to tell you a little bit about a very important holiday called Veterans Day.
Well, when someone says “veteran,” “army,” or anything like that I think of a man or woman in a uniform carrying a gun.
No way! It’s much more than that, but yes the image of a man or woman in a uniform was way right.
Veterans Day is a way of saying an astronomical thanks to the brave, giving veterans.
These veterans made some huge sacrifices such as leaving their family, quitting work, giving up the fun things they liked to do, and definitely sacrificing themselves.
I’ll let you in on a little secret. When it comes to giving up the things I like to do, I’m not all that great at it.
These people are still human beings but amazingly generous ones. These people are protecting us even when we don’t realize it. If you think about it, soldiers are fighting for our country right now.
It’s very important that we say “thanks” to these helpful men and women. Thanks, you really are heroes.
