Vetran's Day

Today is a special day. A day to honor those that we give our gratitude, thanks, and support to for serving our country. Showing much thanks for the many freedom's we hold today. Vetran's day is a very special day for me. It's the day before my birthday but also special because I can honor my grandfather who served in the armed forces. I appreciate all those who sacrafice so much so that we American's can have much in return. They are special people who deserve more than one day to show appreciation to them, but let's all take advantage of it and show your gratitude to those who are vetran's.

Sky View High School had a Vetran Assembly today. There were 3 speakers. One who served in World War II, another who's brother served in Korea and he served in Vietnam, the last who has recently served in Iraq. They were all moving speaches and brought tears to my eyes. It's such an honor to see so many Vetran's today in the assembly, all proud of their country.

I feel blessed to be able to attend this assembly and humbled by the freedom's I take for granted. I hope we all can thank a Vetran today and appreate the greatest country in the world, our country... the USA.

I totally agree.... I have a lot of people in my family that have served, and it's amazing the things they've done to keep our freedoms safe.... More than most people are willing to give it seems.
