Take Time to Interview a Veteran

Veterans Day

Today during a guest (substitute teaching assignment, I had the opportunity to teach sixth-grade science. At the end of the class in the morning, we prepared the students with questions to ask the visiting veterans who were invited to lunch.

What a wonderful sight to see the children sitting with the veterans at lunch and talking to them! When the students came back to class afterward they had the most interesting answers.

For example to the question, “What was one of your more memorable experiences?” One veteran said, “The day someone saved my life.”

Everyday Hero in a Safety Vest

What is going on? Oh, no, we’ve lost electricity. I wonder how long it will be off? I had tried the kitchen lights, then the bathroom lights and then the living room.

I had been procrastinating. I need to work on some of the tedious parts of getting my book ready for publication. After working hard all week as a guest (substitute) teacher, all I wanted to on a Saturday is relax. But I also wanted to get the book done.

Now, this could be another obstacle.

I wanted to go to the neighbors to find out if they had lost electricity. I jumped in the shower, got dressed and went outside.
