Educate Your Children About Veteran’s Day [GLENN REACTS]
On this Veterans Day, 'Glenn Reacts' will have a different tone. I usually react with a humorous take. However, I take honoring our Veterans seriously. This is a great way to educate our kids about America's history and Veterans Day. These are things to do with your children today. These are in no particular order.
5) Take part in a flag-raising ceremony: Local veteran groups like the American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars often participate with military banners and American flags. You say that your too busy for that. How about saying the Pledge of Allegiance with your kids at home. Here's the words.
4) Take a Veteran to lunch or dinner. Here's some places that even offer discounts.
3) Tweet your gratitude. You can do it at anytime and anywhere. Here's one place to do it.
1) Participate in a moment of silence in remembrance of those who gave their lives for their country. It usually happens around 11am and lasts for two minutes. I'm doing it with my family before we eat tonight. I'll remember Harold "Bud" Skinner and John Priestner.
Take the time to thank and remember the Veterans who have done so much for us.
