Today is Veterans Day.
First of all, say thanks to your veterans, whether it’s a family member or if you just say it in spirit. Quite a few family members and several friends serve(d), and I appreciate their service. I know I could never do something like that.
Anyway, today is a federal holiday. Post offices are closed, banks are closed, even the local library is closed.
But the schools are not.
So, coming from a busy and exhausted student who could’ve used the day off, why aren’t schools closed for this federal holiday? Thanksgiving gets three days from school for whatever reason (considering the history of Thanksgiving versus the history of Veterans Day). And I know my teacher friends are cursing this as well.
Just a question from someone who could’ve used those three and a half hours working on her assignment that’s due tomorrow.
Happy Veterans Day!
