It is incumbent upon us to remember that these brave men and women aren't just soldiers. They are mothers, brothers, fathers, husbands, and friends. They are doctors, lawyers, students, and even teachers. I was taught by veterans. I trained to become a teacher with veterans. While today is a day we honor the fallen, it's also another opportunity to remember those who are still with us. In the line of duty they've lost brothers and sisters in arms and have a more personal connection to the true meaning of today.
How can we honor all of them? By living lives worthy of their sacrifice. By being someone worthy of protecting. I teach, but no matter what you do, do good in this world because people have made unimaginable sacrifices to give you the freedom to do whatever you want.
Relax today and catch up on what DISD news we've been rambling about, but remember why you're able to enjoy this downtime and day off work.
