Make Veterans Day a Golden Occasion for Growing Generations

November 11, 2012  by: Paulose  Points: 15   Category: Others    Views: 585

Veterans Day, observed on 11 November, has a great significance in life. It is quite different from other holidays. It should be an occasion to teach the growing generations the value of freedom and how the veterans of the country dedicated their lives to protect the human freedom.


Veterans Day is observed in America on 11 November. This day has great significance not only in lifting up the pride of the USA but also in guarding the peace and welfare of the whole world. Commonwealth countries observe this day as Remembrance Day to recall the end of hostile memories of World War I. The memories of the veterans who laid down their precious lives for human freedom should instill in everyone alive today the value of freedom and human solidarity. The celebrations of Veterans Day should teach the growing generations the evils of war and the value of peaceful life.

Veterans Day a golden occasion for the thought of freedom

Veterans Day should make indelible memories in the minds of children. By honoring the brave men and women, living and dead, who fought for America, the children should be made aware of the price of freedom and the evil consequences of World Wars.

How to make the Veterans Day an occasion of indelible memory?

1) Children should know who are the veterans
Veterans of America fought for the battles of the country to protect the freedom and rights of humanity. Veterans, young and old, living and dead, stood bravely in the battlefields for the goals of the country. Most of them laid down their lives, getting injured or killed in faraway countries. Many are still spending their lives in nursing homes.

2) The spirit of the veterans still protects the country
By thinking about the veterans, the growing generations should be stimulated to live for the ideals of human rights. America is still marching forward because of these veterans who worked with great dedication for their country.

3) Families can share the experiences of Veterans Day
Modern children may not have direct experience of the Veterans Day or how the dedication of the veterans built up the country. Elders and relatives of a family can share their past experiences with the growing generations. Children can be encouraged to send greeting cards to veterans in the neighborhood.

4) Communities can arrange activities that stimulate patriotic spirit
Communities or organizations can arrange programs to honor veterans in the neighborhood. Visiting the sick in the Veterans Hospitals may be a good occasion to share experiences.

5) Educational institutions may motivate
Educational institutions may motivate children to contribute their might for the cause of the veterans. Communities and educational institutions may visit historical places or make a trip to the local veteran cemetery. They may also arrange parades or cultural programs that can create living memories in the next generation.

Veterans day observance gives ample opportunities to think of and thank for the heroic deeds and sacrifices of the veterans. By celebrating a meaningful Veterans Day, spirit of patriotism can be built up in the growing generations.
