1.      “We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude." --Cynthia Ozick

3.     "I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, "Mother, what was war?"  --Eve Merriam
4.     "How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!" --Maya Angelou
