After the war, they got back to daily life, and contributed to make the country’s most powerful peacetime economy. They also recorded highest marriage rate and birth rate, and became parents of the Baby Boomers. This generation has accomplished a lot throughout their lifetime, but never showed it off.

Even though the prosperity of America brought them better lives, they still missed the absence of Kerry
About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear. However, I do remember them by showing me to never give up. Their words and actions will be with me forever, as hard as life gets, never back down, if you do… you better get back up. And to this day, I have been knocked down twice, but I have been able to get back up. Therefore, after losing two of my favorite people, there is now a good reason to celebrate Dia de Los

The Veterans are the ones most affected by being homeless.Veterans deserve and should have the fist right over government benefits before illegal aliens. “On the whole, veteran homelessness has decreased 47% since 2010 and the number of unsheltered veterans has been slashed by more than half, according to a report released by the obama Administration”.

But no one wants to help the veterans why?
Joey went through Hell, and was almost killed many times. But he stood strong and ended up being back in safety. Albert may have been drafted into the war, but his hope to find Joey was what kept him alive. War changes perspective and causes you to think and act differently. “Everyone has a touch of bravery and a splash of stupidity”.
That year he also brought his family there for a new home. Boone helped a lot by people due to who he was.

Our American veterans epitomize the great values of what the United States of America was founded upon hundreds of years ago by our founding fathers, our democracy, the principles of freedom, liberty, and courage. Veterans Day is often overlooked by many as just a day off of school but it means much more than that. Veterans Day honors our pride for our veterans and remembers those men and women with respect.
They go out everyday and fight for our freedom. Many soldiers lives are lost everyday in war. Saying the star spangled banner is respect towards them. American citizens are suppose to be thankful for what they do everyday. Most NFL players are payed millions just to sit on a bench.
Many people seem to think that Bernie Sanders won’t be able to make America great again; however, he has been in public office for more than 30 years. He has seen some of the greatest down falls that America has been through. He knows his facts and he knows his country. Not anyone can really say that he doesn’t know what he is doing, because he surely does. Bernie wants every American that there is to stand together with him, so that he can fight for the support of free health care, free college tuition, and getting our middle class Americans out of
Many Holocaust survivors, like Solomon Radasky, have lost their lives to the Nazis and died trying to live each day during the Holocaust. Solomon Radasky cared about surviving in the camps because he wanted to survive, even though it seemed impossible for others.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars go into representing the value of a human life. The government continuously hands money to civilians who lost a loved one and struggle to maintain a lifestyle. Putting a dollar value on human life is without a doubt inhumane, but valuing life as much as possible is the most important aspect to discovering human value.
