The History of Veteran’s Day Veteran’s Day formerly, known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War 1, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislation that was passed in 1938, November 11 was “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as `Armistice Day .” The observation of Veterans Day was set as the fourth Monday in October. The first Veterans Day under the new law was Monday, October 25, 1971; confusion ensued, as many states disapproved of this change, and continued to observe the holiday on its original date.
In some of the pieces of literature like “I, Too, Sing America,” “America and I,” “The Bill of Rights,” and “Veterans Day: Never Forget Their Duty” the authors have different ideas of what it means to be American. They also express their ideas using different strategies: negation, classification, and function. With these ideas and strategies a more complex definition on what it means to be American was developed. Being an American means being patriotic, having freedoms, and believing in a dream of something amazing. Having patriotism is part of being American.

When you think of veterans, it is rare that horses come to mind, unless it involves a Civil War. A typical soldier and horse statue honoring our veterans does more than symbolize gratitude and bravery. These stone tributes describe the post-war relationship between a soldier and horse.

I had one of these life changing events at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on a trip to Washington D.C. when I was in 6th grade.
Grant’s white horses finally arrive for him and he become more aware and gathers insight about how to learn and cope with tragedies in his life. Waiting for white horses is the theme by how people will become able to receive intuition about the journey of their life. There is an idea expressed towards the end of the book that describes Grant’s dad’s funeral. It is the idea of a funeral being sad that I refute with. I disagree with the books thoughts and believe that funerals should not be mournful, but in fact they should celebrate and reflect someone’s life and also celebrate the beginning of one.
