Breaking News, Community, Events

During Ms.Carnite’s class this week, Gr.12s talked about how Remembrance Day is the day where people “stop thinking, but start feeling”(1984).  So, I went around school and asked some students what they thought of Remembrance Day.

In their responses, everyone had one thing in common: Remembrance Day is the day to remember the soldiers who sacrificed themselves for their country. We should spend this day commemorating these men and women.

“I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, ‘Mother, what was war?'” -Eve Merriam

STUDENT RESPONSES:

Jane: It is a day to be thankful.

Aidan: I like Remembrance Day. It’s a day where you think about the soldiers even though you don’t know them personally.

Ashley: It is about remembering the people who gave their lives for us. Whenever I think about them, they remind me of my grandparents. They would do anything for you.

Nicolle: It means to remember and appreciate everything around you and your life. It is about paying respect to the soldiers for their sacrifice.

Lily: Remembrance day is a day that we show respect to the soldiers by wearing poppies and letting them know we’re not forgetting them.

Taylor: It is a time to pay respect to the people who fought for our country. We should take time in our lives and realize that the world doesn’t revolve around us and there are so many people who sacrifices their lives to provide a better world.

Mallory: It is all about remembering the people who fought for freedom.

Jennifer: The day to remember the pain of the war, especially the soldiers who were fighting.

Taylor: A day to remember the soldiers who fought for us and show our gratitude.

Stephanie: It is a day to remind us of all the sacrifices  the soliders made.
