Veterans Day

            When most people think about Veterans day, they think about No School, but there’s more to meet the eye about Veterans Day.

 

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday which honors people who have served in armed service also known as veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. Many people have  fought for us, and many risked their lives, never to meet their families again. Their families had to sacrifice too, losing their loved ones, just to protect us.

 

Have you ever thought about dying? These people didn’t want to die, but sacrificed their life for the sake of the country, our people, our future, our young and loved ones. They lost so much, and not many of us think of them, is that fair? Some veterans are still alive, but they lost their arms, legs, and possibly their memories of their family. But they’ve accepted this, and moved on. What have we done for them? Do they have to sacrifice themselves for us? Ask yourself. Think about it.

 

Do you want to lose someone you love most? These veterans’ families didn’t want to lose their loved ones, but they accepted the fact that they lost who they loved, and went on not regretting anything, not because they’re heartless, but they knew that whom they love has been remembered, and honored. Veterans’ families remember all veterans when they think of their loved ones. But why can’t we remember these veterans? Do we have to lose our loved ones to remember these veterans?

 

Before writing this story, we didn’t remember these veterans either, but from now on, we will always remember those who have saved our lives, along with many others, and saved the freedoms we enjoy.
