Ft. Benning | May 5, 2016
May 4th, seven students from McBride Elementary School
participated in the Days of Remembrance ceremony for the Maneuver Center of
Excellence. This ceremony, which took place at the National Infantry
Museum, was to remember and honor the victims of the Holocaust. Our
students delivered inspiration al readings to commemorate this tragic time in
history. The students also handed out paper butterflies symbolizing hope
for the future. McBride's students in grades 3-5 had also made paper
butterflies that were used to decorate gardens at Martin Army Hospital.
The program, with guest speaker Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein, was
thoughtful and uplifting as we remembered the past and sought to learn from the
many acts of courage described by Rabbi Adlerstein.
