Veterans Day is distinct from most holidays. It is something that should hold true to everyone’s heart. No matter if you personally are a veteran or not, chances are you know someone that is. On November 11th, we celebrate all the wonderful things that military veterans have done for us in protecting our country. The United States set aside this day to honor our veterans, however we should honor them as much and as often as possible.
One cultural value from the colonial period that we still follow today is honoring your parent and elders. Kids and young adults must honor our parents and elders, because that is the respectful thing to do. We also love our friends like how
"I'd always heard how Ganjitsu, New Year's Day, was a festival for the Japanese... I find there's something more spiritual in Japan on this day of renewal." (Page 95). Since Matsu and Sachi live in Japan, they celebrate Ganjitsu and mend conflict with Kenzo to forget the past and predicaments. This is a time where they can put the war, diseases, etc behind them and celebrate purity.
A veteran is a person who has served our country but has now retired. They have fought to keep our country safe, risked their lives for us, and have died for us. They have honored our country, so why not honor them to. I honor veterans by saying the pledge of Allegiance every morning, giving donations, remembering veterans day, saying thank you whenever I see a veteran and by listening to their story’s when I talk to them. I think honoring veterans is so important because they have done so much for us.
Honoring a veteran does not have to be a complicated ordeal. Offering a ride shows respect and honor. Sharing a veterans’ stories can help get the word out about war. A simple thank you goes a long way. Picking up their tab shows you know of their many great sacrifices.

We would receive donations of food and necessities to give back to the those in need. On the actual Christmas day, kids would perform a Nativity skit to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ. The whole congregation gathered on Easter and Christmas for services and fellowship. Congregants would invite their extended family members to come join the service on those days to share and celebrate Easter and
Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrating how the Pilgrims invited the local Native Americans to a harvest feast after a particularly successful growing season. Thanksgiving should be a day of rest and giving thanks. A day to spend time with your family and friends. In conclusion we should all work together to make Thanksgiving that special day of rest and thanks, and change Black Friday to some other day before or after Thanksgiving. That way, no one would have to worry about their friends and family during this special and meaningful holiday.
The first thing and also the most significant thing is that the planet is warming. Over the last century, the planets temperature has risen by around 0.6 of a degree celsius. Carbon pollution has driven up the global average temperature for more than a century. So perhaps it’s no surprise that the 10 hottest years ever recorded have all occurred since 1998. The hottest year on record is 2016.
