Veterans Day isn’t about relaxing at home or hanging with friends. Instead, it’s about remembering those who served in the war and died, and honoring the military soldiers. It first started on November 11, 1919. Just one American Veteran is still alive today: 108-year-old Frank Buckles. In order to recognize Veterans Day, the Dublin society should host a community walk, wear white, and bring in real soldiers to talk. The community walk should be mandatory for every Dublin resident to attend because it is a way for them to show their honor to the ones who have died. Walking together would show the amount of respect we have as a community for the soldiers. The citizen’s of Dublin should wear white to represent the bravery; one of the many characteristics that the soldiers had. By wearing white, we can learn the value of sacrifice and putting a cause before ourselves. The soldiers could come and talk about their experiences in the military. They could also talk about how they survived being a soldier and what they are doing to serve their country.
Some people would think that the vets were heroes while others would think that they’re only regular people who just went to war. They don’t know how these soldiers risked everything they ever loved in order to save their country. We shouldn’t think of them as heroes, but legends, who stepped up against the world and fought with everything they had. “From our soldiers, we should learn this most important lesson: all life is sacred, and every citizen is important.”
