I knew I would miss them deeply, so I began to cherish the days I had left to spend with them before my trip.
Simply reciting the National Anthem is a way to show my respect for the country and gives a thank you to the ones who have fought and died for my freedom. The National Anthem means a lot to me for the utter fact that a few of my family members have served for the country. As a young child I can remember waiting at the door for my uncles to walk through, the thought of them not coming home ever again scared me. Every time the phone rang I hoped that my uncles would say they were gonna be coming home soon. After 4 years they finally came home, the sense of happiness and relief overwhelmed me.
