Happy Veteran’s Day

Self Help Inc. CFCE and families want to thanks the members of the US Armed Services and their families for their sacrifice and work to keep America FREE!

20141105_174450 Children and families, who participate in SHI CFCE’s  Magic Carpet Book Club  at the Canton Public Library set a “White Table” (missing  man’s table) in remembrance of those service men who did not come home.  They also created a bulletin board with messages and pictures!  (click here for more prek-K Veteran;s Day Crafts)

“We cover a small table with a white cloth to honor a soldier’s pure heart when he answers his country’s call to duty.”

“We place a lemon slice and grains of salt on a plate to show a captive soldier’s bitter fate and tears of families waiting for loved ones to return.”

“We push an empty chair to the table for the missing soldiers who are not here.”

“We lay a black napkin for the sorrow of captivity, and turn over a glass for the meal that won’t be eaten.”

“We place a white candle for peace and finally, a red rose in a vase tied with a red ribbon for the hope that all our missing will return someday.”

“You are not forgotten so long as there is one left in whom your memory remains”
