Veteran’s Day

Posted by Santa Claus on November 11th, 2010

Today is a very special day.  It is not a day about treats from friends.  That is Halloween.  It is not a day about gifts from me, Santa Claus.  That is Christmas.   It is a day about a different gift.

Yes, today is a very special day.  Some of my friends call it Remembrance Day.  Some call it Armistice Day.  Some call it Veteran’s Day.

Like I said, today is not about Halloween treats.  Today is not about Christmas gifts.  Today is about a better gift.  It is not a gift you can eat.  It is not a gift you can open.  But it is better.

Today is about the gift of freedom.  If we did not have freedom, there might not be Halloween treats or Christmas gifts.  There might not be elves, flying reindeer, or even me, Santa Claus!

Like I said, today is not about witches.   Today is not about Santa Claus.  Today is about the men and women who gave us freedom.  Today we remember what they did for us.

They fought, and are still fighting, in wars.  They fought so we could have freedom.  Many of them died.  Many more of them were hurt.  We must always remember what they did so we could have freedom.

Poppy

Poppy we are but children small,
We are too little to do it all.

Children you may do your part.
Love each other is how you start.
Play without fighting.
Share your games and toys.
Be kind and thoughtful,
To all girls and boys.

“Lest We Forget”

Santa Claus

    We are free because of them. they where happy children once and now they may be gone or going. we are free for now. so if us children can get along, when the adults have gone we can resatrt in the futer! we are a new genoration! So lets change how things are now, to make the world a better place for our children! i feel strong about this and so should you, because at the moment, life is being lead down into a bottemless pit, and when we’re down, only few will escape! :) love katy
