  1. I disagree with your point, but you still had an excellent speech and presentation. The photos were amazing and you spoke with so much emotion that it made a very persuasive point.

  2. I'm in complete agreement with you. This is a problem that needs to be addressed by our society now more than ever and it's unfortunate that soldiers are not receiving the support they deserve.

  3. Great job presenting a unique topic. I myself haven't really appreciated the armed forces, but after listening to you talk and hearing what it means to you has made me more appreciative of the armed forces.

  4. Ellie- You come off very passionate about the embrace of soldiers. Compassion is just as impactful as providing for a soldier's family while they are on leave.

  6. Ellie, I have wondered about this exact point for a long time. I completely agree, we should always be behind our soldiers, because of their personal sacrifice.

  11. Ellie, I don't know if you were in Mr. Mair's class, but as a class we sent letters and some packages overseas. Anyway, I totally agree with your point.

  12. I personally connected with your talk because both of my grandpas were in the military as well as many other members of my family. I have also read Black Hawk Down and Flags of Our Fathers, both of which have shown me how much our soldiers go through to protect us. These books have really made me appreciate all that our armed forces have done for us.
