Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day.  This is a holiday that stirs in us patriotic feelings, making us proud to be Americans.  But I also think of all the men and women had given their lives for this country, and am humbled.

Several years ago, my husband took me out to the cemetery where most of his family is buried. They purchased the lots in the early 1940's.  When I  walked around the area, there were lots of grave that the end dates were 1941, 1942, 1943. These were young men in the prime of the life.  It is a sobering experience.  Or if you walk around Gettysburg, there is solemness that descends on your soul. There is nothing we can do except say thank you.  Thank you.
