I am thankful for…

By Sarah Bartholemy

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it's the time of year when we have the opportunity to slow life down for just a second, to stop and give thanks for all that we are thankful for. Not only do we count our blessings, but we also get to spend time with our beloved friends and family and celebrate by stuffing ourselves with buckets of tasty food. I thought that I'd kick off the Thanksgiving season with a few things that I'm thankful for:

1) I'm thankful for my family and my friends. I'm constantly surrounded by the most amazing people that motivate me and push me to be the best that I can be. They say that the people you surround yourself with define who you are. I'm blessed to be surrounded by nothing but positive, loving people. 

2) I'm also thankful for agriculturists. Without people that dedicate their lives to the production of food we would constantly be hungry and would not have that beautiful spread of food on thanksgiving. 

3) I'm thankful for my teachers. Educators are so important, because they're teaching the future of our nation. I've been blessed with some of the best teachers who supply with me knowledge, challenge me, and take the time to make sure that I understand what I'm doing. 

4) I'm thankful for my sister. My sister is one of the strongest human beings I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. My sister protects me, takes care of me and even aggravates me. Despite our differences, I wouldn't trade my sister for the world.

5) I'm thankful for love and laughter. Laughter provides us the opportunity to look at the positive side of things and unifies people to share joy in the same thing. Love allows us to be happy and accept people for who they are.

I have much to be thankful for, but what are you thankful for?

Veterans Day

By Vince Bullard

On Monday, Nov. 11, Cedar Key School was out for Veteran’s Day. To most kids, it’s just a day we don’t have to go to school. But, since it’s also the month to give thanks,  I’d like to thank those who have given us the freedom we have today, and those who are still protecting it. 

As the son of a former Marine, this holiday is very near and dear to my heart, as it is to the many Americans who also have had family in the service. 

The freedoms we have come to know today have not been handed to us without a price; perseverance and bravery from the many American service men and women have made it possible for us to live freely and safely. Veteran’s Day became a national holiday in 1938, but was then called “Armistice Day”; it wasn’t until 1954 that it became Veteran’s Day – to honor all who’ve served. So, as we go on with our lives, let us not see Veteran’s Day as another day off of work, or out of school, but for the important holiday it is.

 “The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.”
