    Veterans' Day
    By sandyH

    We had a WONDERFUL Veterans' Day assembly last year. Our students sang patriotic songs (God Bless America, My Country 'tis of Thee, America, & God Bless the USA.) We invited veterans who were relatives of our students to attend. They could share their experiences, and about 5 chose to do so. It was so important for our students to understand the hardships that these men (in our case, but women vets were certainly welcome!) endured, and yet every one said how proud he was to have served his country and how much he loved his country. We had an inspirational reading by one of our teachers from Chicken Soup for the Veteran's Soul, and a heartfelt address from our principal, who also happens to be a veteran. It was a very moving day.
