A Lesson For Schools

I believe every school in America can learn from this exercise. If all of them taught real American history, and the effort America expended on making the world a safer place by sending our citizen troops to fight wars for valid reasons our kids would be better off. Some schools do teach what veterans did for us. My grandson attends such a school. His father sent me this e-mail and the photos.

Hey Dad,
 I took Dan to swim practice tonight.  This week he’s swimming outside.  The pool he’s at is right across the street from his school.  A couple of weeks ago, he was working on a project for Veterans Day.  IT was called a “Veterans Postcard”.  He had to interview a vet and make a visual post card with the name of the vet, branch severed, etc.  He then told me that they laminate all of them, and put them up at school.  To my surprise, as I was walking the paths around the pool past Dan’s school, I saw an image that was quite overwhelming.  They hung all of these “postcards” right in front of the school.  Two thousand kids go to that school, and they all made them.  They strung them on lines from post to post.  When I got there, it was still light outside.  BY the time I found Danny’s postcard it was already dark.  Here are some pics…I may go back tomorrow during the day to get this amazing tribute to our vets captured on film during the day.

A  National memorial commemorating the Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars has not yet been established, let us honor these brave military people for their service as well, and all lessor war skirmishes that our country fought in.

This video says what is in my heart. I salute every veteran who has protected me and my family since World War II. I owe you all a debt of gratitude.
