Thank You Veterans

This post doesn’t have much to do with educational technology but it does with learning. Today, and really tomorrow (Saturday) we remember our veterans and I hope we’ve learned some lessons from them. I am thankful of the airborne troops who liberated Holland in 1944 and jumped with the 82nd and 101st during Operation Market Garden in 1944 (as well as the British and Polish paras who fought so gallantly in Arnhem). My life could be very different today if it hadn’t been for them.

Hopefully we’ve all learned at least something from their courage and sacrifices. For some thought-provoking cartoons about Veterans’ Day, please click here. A picture is worth a thousand words…….
