Yesterday Rex told me that he was going to be giving a Veterans Day speech at school. I was initially excited for him, how brave of him to get up in front of the entire school. Then I had a slight panic. WHAT was he going to say? Luckily his teacher asked for the speech to be written down, to assure that the speech was appropriate, and a bonus for me, I get to keep it and share with you.
Today we honor, remember, and respect the brave men and women who served. They gave us freedom, liberty, and protection. At this moment, pilots, solders, sailors, and even people at a desk, protect us day and night. My life, your life, your family's life is in the hands of the people on the field. From wooden boats to high tech stealth subs, from cannons to rail guns, from muskets to high-tech machine guns, from cloth and wood trip-planes to todays stealth jets. No matter the weapons, they don't matter, it is the bravery in the hearts of these brave veterans.
Remember, when you wake up tomorrow to play video games, remember the brave people protecting you,
