REMEMBERING THE BRAVE….CHILDREN

Hello guys, it’s me Jenny.  I was thinking about Memorial Day and all those who have protected us in America with their own lives.  Wow, I appreciate them and I really love them.  We can talk to each other and go places because of them.

I want you to look at the picture below.  It’s of some kids just like you.  They lived in 1865.  The one holding the flag is in the lead and they are honoring, saying ‘Thank You’ to some soldiers who died a long time ago.  Now, you know that kids in every age can be good patriots, too.  Just like you.  Ask  mom and dad about Memorial Day if you need to.  They’ll tell you that it’s a time when the entire country remembers men and women who fought in wars for our great country so that we can be free.  Do you want to honor them?  Then make it the best life you can and help others.  Talk to you soon.

Kids can be Patriots, too!

 

Hi guys.  This month we have celebrated the birthdays of President George Washington the first president of the United States -born February 22nd; and  President Abraham Lincoln – born February 12th.  He was the 16th president of our country.  President Washington was leader of the country during and right after the Revolutionary War  You can watch a little bit about the Revolutionary War by clicking the link above.   President Lincoln lead the country during another terrible war: The Civil War  Click this link to find out more about the Civil War.  Both of these presidents loved our country and did what they thought was right to help it out.  That made them patriots.

You and I, too, are patriots when we care and love this great country; and do the best that we can to help it and all of the people who live here to be happy here.  We can do that by first of all reading and learning about it in school, and then when you get to the right age, vote on the elections we have in this great country.  Hey, that’s a good way for patriots to begin.
