Thinking about Memorial Day
Next weekend, we'll celebrate the start of summer with Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day started as an event to honor Union soldiers, who had died during the American Civil War. It was inspired by the way people in the Southern states honored their dead. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women, who died in any war or military action.
Do you know someone in your life that was or is in the military now? Imagine what that person has experienced, how their life has changed by being in the military.
In today's Use Your Imagination, write about how important these people are to our country and why we should always thank them for their service.
