Veterans Day Celebrations!
The Veterans Day Celebrations across the day on Wednesday, November 11th were inspirational and touched our entire community. Starting in the morning, the Secondary Building held a Veterans Day Assembly. As the veterans marched in and in one voice we said the Pledge of Allegiance, my heart swelled with thankfulness for the gift of living in this wonderful country. During the years of 1989-1992, I did not live in the United States of America, but overseas and in Montreal, Canada. The most vivid memory for me of this time was in Prague, Czechoslovakia. My living quarters were a campground and on July 4th - Independence Day - I looked up at the stars, my heart yearned for home, missing our great country and all of the freedoms we take for granted.
The Veterans Assembly reminded me clearly of this time, and as the young people listened and asked questions of our Veterans, their responses were of awe and wonder. The speakers were all a big hit, but I really enjoyed Marshall Rogne, Chris Rogne's, brother. He told the students when one asked him, "What do you say when someone tells him thank you for serving our country?"
I would like to give a big Shout Out to this young lady who is making excellent choices for her future! She is a wonderful person whose future will be in working with young children
or the elderly.
