Soldier Homecoming Surprises

This morning, Carolyn (my fabulous co-worker without whom I would be completely miserable) and I decided that our ELL students needed a little lesson on Veteran's Day. All they seemed to care about was the fact that we were in school despite today being a national holiday. Thank you United Streaming and YouTube for giving us a way to "show" our students the purpose of this day.

This is the one video I absolutely had to share. Even though it's like the sixth time I've seen it, I'm moved to tears within the first 30 seconds. I just can't help it. My students, too, were captivated by this video... which is a miracle because nothing seems to hold their attention!

A huge thank you goes out to all the gallant men and women that serve, past or present, in our armed forces. You have all sacrificed so much for us, and I can't imagine where we'd be without you!
