This is actually true, and I thought I would share it.
Every year in America, on the day before our holiday Memorial Day, which is when we honor our fallen soldiers, we have a tradition called "Rolling Thunder".
Men and women from all over the country travel to our capital, Washington DC, on motorcycles to show their love for our country and those who served it.
Living right outside the capital, we are in a neighborhood right next to a highway, so we go to watch every year. It really is a fantastic sight.
This year our family went to our local farmers market for donuts afterwards. On our way home, we crossed the same bridge again.
We came across a very old man, like early 90s, with a WWII Veteran cap on. He turned to us and asked "Did I miss it?"
"Yeah" we replied in dismay, for we were not sure if this man who had served our country would live to see another one.
"That's a shame. I have not missed one in a very long time."
