WHAT A VISIT TO A COAL MINE CAN TEACH YOU

When I was in Elementary School many years ago, I got to go on a field trip with my class to a coal mine. The really cool thing about going to the mine is that they took our class into the mine where they work.

Since we were children, they explained what they did and this proved to be interesting. Of course it was more than we just mine for coal. As a child, the fact that I was in a coal mine and what the surroundings of a coal mine looked like was just incredible.

Learning about the coal mine was interesting and I did learn that no matter what job you might have, you are an important asset to that company.

Our field trip to the coal mine ended when we were given a piece of coal as a souvenir to remember our trip to the coal mine. I still have that piece of coal I got that day.

A THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO FIGHTS FOR OUR FREEDOM

Freedom is not a

Right but a privilege.

Our active military and

Veterans are the people

We should thank for

Our freedom that

We have today because

They not only endure

The terror of fighting for us

But they also endure the

Fear of what could happen but

Also the sadness of losing a friend,

loneliness and

Darkness they face on a daily basis.

Even though they may be

Locked into serving his/her

Country due to military orders received but

In the end, our loved ones and friends

Will either come home in death or

They will make it home to their

Families and that’s when

The celebration will start.

So instead of

Taking just one day to

honor our veterans, let’s

honor all of our military

By saying thank you

Anytime we see a

Veteran or a

Family member of a

Fallen veteran.

The fact of the matter is,

We should honor

All of our veterans

Everyday.

Thank You Veterans!

Everyone has a hero or heroes they may look up to daily. But can they say they have an unsung hero in their lives? Everyone has to answer this question daily. The way I answer this question is like this. My heroes are my parents and when my grandparents were alive, they were also my heroes. As for my unsung heroes, well I would say that would be my parents. Since day 1 they have not only encouraged me but helped me strive to meet my goals. ย For example, when I became unemployed when the store closed its doors, they have helped me work through being unemployed. Also, some other examples might be when the son and/or daughter finds themselves as a caregiver because the roles are switched and the children must take care of the parents. This would have to be tough. ย I haven’t had to deal with that with my parents yet.

Unsung heroes mean something different to each of us but to me it means someone who should be recognized for something but rarely gets the deserved recognition they deserve.

I know everyone believes something different and that’s why we have choices. Let’s think about something for a moment and that is where you find an unsung hero, you will usually find an angel. Why is that? In my opinion, it’s mainly because your unsung heroes could be your guardian angels.

Guardian angels are great. I have had one since the day I was born. Let me give you an example. I was working one day and fell backwards. No big deal except that right beside me where I fell was a glass table with a metal base. I feel my guardian angel guided my fall and let me fall on the marble floor and not on the metal base of the table. I could give many more examples but will not.

As you probably figured out that I believe in guardian angels and they play an important role in our daily life. Also, you will find that Unsung Heroes And Guardian Angels go hand in hand.
