How Grateful Should We Be?

It turns out that both my grandfathers fought in World War II so that I could spend most of today completing report card grades for my students. Take that, Imperial Japan!

On a more serious note, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Veteran's Day and the sacrifices of American soldiers past and present.

Here's what I wrote about the video of the Normandy Kid:

And here's a link to something I posted about the Battle of Gettysburg:

As for today, let's make this short and sweet. This is one of my favorite movie scenes, from Saving Private Ryan:


All of us should always remember that our freedom has been earned for us. Even the freedom to complete report card grades in safety is something that shouldn't be taken for granted.
