As we approach another Memorial Day weekend, I often worry that these significant days are not covered enough in schools. I hope students realize that they are not just "days off of school," weekends for sales and parties, but days that deserve reflection and even action.
You may have noticed the pictures in the room of classmates that I have lost serving our country. Some of you may have heard me tell stories about them, and I have listened to many of your stories as well. You may have noticed from time to time I wear a bracelet that my grandmother gave me in high school, before I went to a week of JROTC training during the summer.
