Christopher had yesterday off of school in observance of Veterans' Day. He has asked for the past few weeks to be taken to a cemetery on Veterans' Day. Last year, his 2nd Grade teacher Mrs. L had instilled the importance of the day... that it is not just another day to have a sale, but to pay our respects to Veterans.
I knew there was a Memorial Park near Christopher's school in Beaverton. We drove there in the cold rain of a Portland afternoon to pay our respects.
It was an educational day for both of us. It's funny how children can remind you of the importance of observances. Thank you, Veterans, for your sacrifice. Some gave all...
