Wow, so many tweets from this weekend, and so little time to highlight only the five best! Thank you to everyone who participated in week one of the #Sacrifice4Freedom Twitter Contest sponsored by HISTORY®! We are blown away by your responses. We will be sending out new prompts every day this week from @NationalHistory at approximately 8AM ET, so keep up the good work for a chance to win $500 from HISTORY®.
Last Friday we asked you to tweet about the rights for which you are grateful and their accompanying responsibilities. Here are the top five responses:
- @ohai_its_eli @NationalHistory In WWII we championed FDR’s #4Freedoms. Still have duty to protect these rights. #sacrifice4freedom pic.twitter.com/cGpIVgFfgb
- @DakotaStrode As put by the French philosopher François-Marie Arouet Voltaire. True words in modern day America #Sacrifice4Freedom pic.twitter.com/Ce2PQQHHHc
- @swquest @NationalHistory Fortunate to have quality, free public education; must use my knowledge for better future #Sacrifice4Freedom
- @mmmgreekyogurt Voting is the foundation of a free nation and it is our duty to do so in order to remain a global beacon of democracy #Sacrifice4Freedom
- @kaylieoco I am grateful that I have both the right to participate in the government and the responsibility to preserve democracy. #Sacrifice4Freedom
Today’s prompt requires you to think about sacrifice from a new perspective: WWII was also a battle of industry. What did U.S. workers who kept troops fed, armed, & supplied sacrifice? #Sacrifice4Freedom
Students, if you missed out last week, you can still register and participate this week. Just go to http://www.nhd.org/SacrificeContest.htm, and register.
