I AM SO PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN! I seriously get teary eyed just thinking about it. I live in a military town, and sadly I've seen first hand how de-sensitized they can become. But, I hope we all take a few moments out of our lives to sincerely thank a veteran (or two or three) for his or her service to our magnificent country. Let's never forget that there are sooo many men and women today who bravely chose to enter the service out of love for their country, knowing exactly what it meant to do so. I am so very thankful, and I have tried my best to show that to my class this week. Friday is not just a day off. It's special! So, we made these as a tribute to our veterans (many of whom are the very parents of children in my class.....and my very own husband).
THANK YOU VETERANS OF ALL AGES FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE SACRIFICE FOR THIS AMAZING COUNTRY OF OURS! AMERICA WOULDN'T BE WHAT IT IS TODAY WITHOUT YOUR SERVICE AND GOD'S BLESSING! LET'S NOT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.
