Wreaths Across America


Jade Banks

On Saturday, December 16th, an event took place at three different locations in the US. Wreaths Across America is a community service project where volunteers place wreaths on the graves of fallen veterans to honor them and their service. I participated in this event as well did my mother and a group of her friends. There was an opening ceremony, a moment of silence, presentation of the colors then the ceremony commenced. It was a truly beautiful and heartfelt ceremony and I was glad to be a part of it, the only disappointment was the shortage of supply of wreaths, however, this event really shows how people can come together.
