The value of honoring Memorial Day in the classroom:
For many students, war is an unfamiliar topic that often goes undiscussed at home. Taking the time to honor those who have fought for our country can help instill respect for the men and women who have served and continue to serve America today. Though this may be a sensitive topic for many, the impact that the military has on our country is one that should not be overlooked.
