Monday, March 16th, I received a visit from a former student, Laura. She presented me with a beautiful patriotic pin, which I wear every day now. My Laura, ( I always call her that), is a special young lady who wants to become a teacher when she gets older. Mind you she is only in Third Grade!
I encourage her always to follow her dream, and make a difference in this world.
This poem was attached to the pin. I love you, Laura!!
is for the courage and brave sacrifice, which purchased our freedom at such a dear price.
for the truths that make us stand tall- equality, liberty and justice for all.
stands for pride and deep loyalty to the land of the brave and the home of the free.
for the treasures with which we are blessed- the beauty and bounty of North, South, East, and West. For this grandeur and glory, we thank God above and entrust to His care this land that we love!
