By Mary Lynn Bushong

2     Andrew sat down beside Ryan and said, "I don't think it's asking too much to pause for two minutes to honor our veterans who have given so much for us."
 
3     "Yes, but didn't we just do that back in May with Memorial Day?" Ryan asked. "Why do we have to do it again?"
 
4     "Memorial Day is set aside to remember those who died in all wars, but Veterans Day is for honoring living veterans," said Andrew as he took a bite of his sandwich.
