We are off from School On 11/11
Tomorrow we have a day off from school, hurrah! But tomorrow is a very special day. Tomorrow we are off for Veterans day. A veteran is someone who has served his nation in the armed forces. Presently we are in the middle of two wars, The War in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan, there are over 200,000 troops in these two fronts facing great danger each day. Thousands of men wounded in these two wars are in hospitals, some have lost legs, arms, hands, eyes, and are terribly ill due to injury. Thousands have died in the last 8 years. These are young men and women, some not more than 10 years older then you.
Tomorrow we remember the men and women who protect us, who give up their lives, being with their families, and the most basic comforts to protect you and I. Lets take some time to remember them tomorrow. Indeed these are the real heroes and without them we would be lost. The least we can do is remember them!
