I have been busy, but I want you to know that I did not miss Memorial Day. My Dad hung our Stars and Stripes and we were thankful our servicemen and women were protecting us.  I was allowed to recognize the “Blue and Gold Star” Military Families over the PA system at my school.  I said, “We take this time to remember our “Blue and Gold Star” Military Families and thank them for their sacrifice, generosity, and we want them to know that they are a part of our community.” I am trying to have this said across New York State on three holidays: Patriot Day, Veterans Day, and Memorial Day.  So far I have met with Westchester County Legislator, James Maisano about this and I have also spoken on the phone with New York State Assemblywoman, Amy Paulin.  I even wrote to the New Rochelle City School District Superintendent, Mr. Richard Organisciak, to ask him for his feedback.  I am wondering how you feel about this idea?

I was busy with studying for science and social studies tests, writing a long paper about parrots, and building and researching a science project with my friend.  I was also practicing for a horse show which was on Sunday, 6/10/13.  Even though I was busy, I still made sure to take a moment to remember our “Blue and Gold Star” families. I encourage you to take a minute out of your busy lives to remember our “Blue and Gold Star” families every day.

Your Neighbor,


Jake & Boo
