Transcript of Veteran's Day Assembly

A martyred gift Someone died yesterday,
to provide you with a gift that
you couldn't give yourself
today. We stay up for 16 hours, You're angry because class ran overtime. You criticize your government and say that war never solves anything. He stays up for days on end. We complain of a headache,
and call in sick He gets shot at as others
are hit. He must keep
moving forward. You talk trash about your "buddies" when they aren't with you. He knows he may never see his buddies again. You go to lunch, complaining about the food. He doesn't get to eat today. He's told he is going to be held over an extra 2 months. You're irritated by your siblings and family members. He waits anxiously in hopes for a letter from home. You have the opportunity to appreciate your loved ones everyday. He lives his life not even knowing if they're okay. Never able to hug away any hurt. You're annoyed when a baby cries in the middle of a meeting. He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they'll ever meet. He sees the innocent tortured and killed by their own people and remembers why he's fighting. You see what the media wants you to see. He sees the broken bodies lying around him. You're asked to obey school rules. You won't. He does exactly what he's told even if it puts his life in danger. We hang an American Flag
in front of our school. He gives us that right by representing our country You are proud to be
living in the land of the free. He is proud to fight for your freedom. You're happy that you live in the home of the brave. He's the brave one that gave it that title. What is a America? There are so many things in your life that a veteran has made possible. The land you live in The Country you love It's the little things that you get to experience every single day. Your ability to
hold a driver's license. The opportunity
you have to set goals
for tomorrow. And regular people
are fighting each day For you.
