The things that I always want to remember are the ones that I will need to get by in a world of chaos. Like the little times when you make a mistake. Or the first time you get a new bike, or the times when your mom/dad come home from a war. You remember those because they mean a lot. Remember the veterans that have died to save our country. They save our country and protect us so we should be thankful and give them credits. Some things I remember vividly and still look back and smile at how un-aware I was.
Does it sound alright? Should I word it differently?
