Last Friday Easton participated in a Veterans Day assembly at his elementary school. Because he is a Cub Scout, he was asked to assist in the Color Guard ceremony. He was in charge of the microphone duties...you know, "color guard advance, etc" and he did a fabulous job. I could tell he was timid, but he pushed through and made his momma proud. I was impressed with the program his school put together and so grateful I attended. It was heartwarming hearing the Veteran's speak directly to the school children, telling them all of the sacrifices they made were for them. I have to admit, I shed some tears.
I wish I could personally thank every man and woman who has honorably served our country. I wish I could tell them how thankful I am for their service. I wish I could embrace their families and look them in the eyes and thank them for their sacrifices. I am an American and all of the freedoms and liberties I enjoy are gifts from our brave service men and women. Our flag is flying this morning. Is yours?
