A Memorial Day Post by My Eight-Year-Old Niece
Last Memorial Day (2014), I wrote a detailed post featuring my father, who served in the army during WWII (1943-46).
This Memorial Day Eve, I was dissecting the Gates Foundation grants for “general operating support”; so, I asked my eight-year-old niece Camille if she would like to write a Memorial Day guest post on the topic of America, or school, or both.
Camille chose to write about America. Here is what she offers to my readers:
In America we need to celebrate our country by celebrating the military men and women that had died. America is a great country because we have freedoms and rights. We, the people, have the chance to participate in a democracy! Many people around the world don’t have that chance. America’s leaders help keep us safe. That’s why we should celebrate our country.
Thank you, Camille.
God Bless America.
