Soldiers

 Veterans Day.  I chatted with a Korean war veteran at the grocery store the other day.  He lives up the street from us and I've seen him out gardening when I have walked by.  He doesn't know me, but when he gave me my poppy, he made a point to say how nice everyone has been to him.  Someone brought him a cup of coffee as he sat out in front of the grocery store and another gave him some warm gloves.  I won't be at school today (I have an all-day seminar) but I hope my students will think about Veterans Day and the sacrifice that was made to ensure their peace.
I love my country and I'm so thankful that I live here.  Thank you, good soldier.  May you feel appreciated and honored today.

Sweet post Pom. My Dad served in the Korean War, the forgotten war. Freedom is never free, and I hope we can be thankful today that "someone" stood up and made it so for us.

Yes! I try to remind my children of how important this day is. Thankfully they attend schools that have special services to help them learn and remember.

Blessings!
