November 11th is a US holiday that honors the people who served in the US Armed Forces. It was made into a holiday by Woodrow Wilson in 1919.
I’m not sure that enough young people respect and appreciate all that veterans of the Armed Forces have done for them. I’m not sure the veterans feel appreciated for all that they went through. I think it is important to impress upon my students that this is an important day and we need to always remember what it stands for.
If you live in the United States, I hope you take the time to thank a veteran for the sacrifices that they made for Americans.
