I participated in a lovely Veteran’s Appreciation ceremony hosted by VISION Outreach afterschool program. The elementary school age children choose the ceremony as their November project, they did most of the speaking and their enthusiasm was contagious.
They were excited to recognize the service of the veterans on hand and we were appreciative of the appreciation.
I reminded them that they too can serve our country in ways that allow them to use their talents. I encouraged them to take their citizenship seriously and learn about the things that they can do to make our country more inclusive, more compassionate and more welcoming to all Americans.
I challenge each of you to do the same.
Inhale Service, Exhale Separation…
Inhale Citizenship, Exhale Apathy…
Inhale Civic Duty, Exhale Selfishness…
