We all know that the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is among the most sacred grounds in the country. This place is dedicated for the courageous men and women who gave up their lives to protect and serve freedom.
Since it was established in 1921 as the final resting place of the Unknown Soldiers who died during World War I, thousands and thousands of tourists flock to the Tomb to pay their respects and honor the sacrifices of the fallen heroes.
But when a group of individuals visited the grounds one day, they seemed to be unaware of the place’s significance. Rather than stay silent and pay their respects, they were loud and rowdy.
Out of nowhere, a tomb guard decided to take action. He broke his 21 step walk and shouted, “It is requested that everyone maintain an atmosphere of silence and respect at all times!”
In an instant, the crowd fell silent. Then, the guard went straight back to his march.
Regardless of the time, the weather, or the day, these tomb guards will always stand in position to honor and respect the fallen heroes of the nation. I’m glad they were able to teach the rowdy spectators the true meaning of ‘respect’.
