This week at school was Patriotic Week at Fairview. During the month of May, students brought in loose change, which we presented to the Glendale Heights VFW Post 2377. They will use the money to purchase phone cards for the brave men and women serving overseas. The students all wore red, white and blue and serenaded the VFW members and three active soldiers with the patriotic songs they have been practicing in music class all month. I have to say that hearing 600 students sing
And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.
gave me goosebumps and brought tears to my eyes. I made this card to thank Judy, who planned Patriotic Week, and for our music teacher. More importantly, I would like to thank all of troops and veterans for keeping us safe! Happy Memorial Day!
