Below is a Veteran’s Day tribute video I shared with my students on Friday. This video makes holding back tears quite difficult. I go back and forth with what images I should share with my students about this day. However, I feel that students at this age a lot of times only understand the true meaning of something after they see it for themselves- – that is abstract ideas like men & women giving their lives to protect us. On Friday we also made place mats which will be sent to the troops for their Thanksgiving meal.
