"Thank You, Soldiers" Video Earns Author "Teacher Of The Year"

In March we were all touched by the You Tube video a Virginia teacher made of his third graders singing "Thank You, Soldiers," that was made for last years Veterans Day.

Third Graders - "Thank You, Soldiers."

I am very pleased to say that Michael Souder, the teacher left a comment on my Clark County Conservative blog,

Thank you again for posting this. Please believe me, I am not bragging, I want to encourage those who figured I end up in trouble for this tribute – our latest headline in Colonial Heights newspaper is, “Tribute Earns Souders a special place in CH hearts – Teacher of the Year”. Yes – the youtube video is now well over 1 million views, and I was just names our school district’s Teacher of the Year. This is GOOD NEWS for all those who are discouraged about public education! Amazing what a little sincere appreciation can do!"
A most deserving award I think.

Thank you, Michael, for such a touching tribute.
