Oh Beautiful for Patriot Dream

It will not be a surprise to anyone with a passing acquaintance with this blog and its author that I believe a picture is a fitting accompaniment to a thousand words.  This is a sterling example from the short, humble, and touching Veteran's Day ceremony at our high school.  

On the front rows sit grizzled and bent Veterans.  Facing them are an equal number of fresh faced five and six year olds wearing cocked paper hats bordered with stars clutching red poppies and small vinyl American flags.  

Enough....see for yourself.  How thankful am I?  Let me count the ways.  Be tearful. Be proud.
