I know veterans day already passed, but When I was in fifth grade we had to write about courage this is what I put:

What is courage, some may ask. What I think courage It’s not having no fear because veterans they were probably really afraid. But the one thing I know is that veterans were really afraid of death, did that stop them? No. It drove them to fight harder. Courage to me means knowing death was close, but still fighting to save the lives of a entire country. To think that people died for my life it’s sad. Courage true courage means to die in the place of others. Thank you veterans.
