A first grade little boy fromÂ Pineville Elementary in Charlotte, North Carolina, learned all about the true meaning of Memorial Day, thanks to his teacherÂ Emily Rose Fontana,Â who decided to show her class a video commemoratingÂ the Soldiers who have lost their lives to war.
“My dad has put so many years into the military and has watched so many best friends pass away,” she said. “So I am a big believer to still teach the real meaning of Memorial Day.”
As Fontana showed the video to her class, one little boy in particular was especially touched by the images in front of him.
“This little special angel sat saluting the screen for the entire 10 min. while tears rolled down his face,” she wrote on Facebook.Â
What an incredible teacher to instill into her students the true meaning of Memorial Day, which so many in this country take for granted. This teacher gets an A in my book!
