Where to begin...
Ah. At the beginning would be a good place to start.
A group of kids from my school have been meeting once a month to do a service project. We call ourselves Students of Service, or SOS. We built a memorial two weeks ago Saturday. Only four of us could make it, but it was a good way to finish SOS projects for the year.
Yep. Hardcore work was done that day, despite Gabbi's photobombing.
My parents got Amazon Prime a few months back, and it's seriously the best thing ever. Free next day shipping has now changed my life.
How have we decided to spend it?
Ordering the 25th anniversary editions of Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables.
Ready to hear about something totally awesome?
There's this program called the Honor Flight. It's this organization that flys World War 2 veterans up to Washington D.C. for the day and takes them to see all of the monuments and memorials, especially the World War 2 memorial.
My grandpa got to go on Tuesday. Since they require the veterans to have a companion with them, my dad got to go too! It was a really cool (and apparently really wet) experience for them both!
What they don't tell the veterans is that there's a welcoming party for them at the airport.
It was so cool to see all of these people, some of whom have no relationship with any of the vets, cheering and thanking each veteran for their service.
You should definitely go see if there's any flights in your area and go to the airport when the vets get back- it's an amazing experience!!!
