Honoring Our Heroes

Last week was Veterans Day. Many years ago, this day meant having a day off from school. Now, Veterans Day means honoring the fact that my brother made it to-and-from war, alive. It means being thankful for those who protected him in war times and have his back now that he is on US territory.

Veterans Day is a special day to me. It’s the reason why I vote. It’s the reason why I take a moment out of my day to think of all the countless lives that when asked to join the service, did so.

Brown University held a beautiful Veterans Day ceremony and I was happy to be there. I got to hear from Veterans of all generations honoring those who came before them.
