Memorial Day

By Hannah T.
Missouri, Age 9

Memorial Day is when we honor people or things. We honor them because they helped make a difference in the world. Like for example, Abe Lincoln made a differnce because he helped free slavery, so we honor him.
Now I'm going to share a Memorial Day poem with you.
Memorial Day, Memorial Day
what happend was just this
the gun powder was loaded
and the guns began to hiss.

Memorial Day, Memorial Day
we remember those who died
their love is in our hearts
and they'll never lose their pride
