All invited to remember, respect

To the editor:

Next Saturday, Nov. 11, we will pause at the 11th hour of the 11th month to celebrate Veterans Day and honor all veterans who have proudly served our nation and those who are serving at home and around the world.

We give thanks to them and their willingness to risk all to keep our beloved America free. We also pray for their families as their loved ones serve and we pray to keep them safe.

A flag ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday. The Old Orchard Beach Memorial Park Committee will hold the event.

We should do our best to teach the younger generation not to forget the importance of our military men and women. To always honor them, remember them and teach others to love and respect this wonderful country of ours.

With love and respect, may God bless America.

Nancy Lee Kelley, Gold Star Mother Old Orchard Beach
