Remembering

Memorial Day was a couple of days ago and Wes and I went to the local parade and program in honor of both our fathers who had fought overseas in the 1940's. I certainly have
issues with war and fighting, but I am so grateful to be living in a free country with the ability to vote, travel with no limitations, read without censorship, worship as I choose, and more.
As the veterans walk by, I find my eyes moist.
As the boy scouts and girl scouts pass by, I am
also touched with these young peoples' lives. Will
they know times of true peace? I certainly hope so. They are our future.
Just for you, Anne and John: a video of your former band director, Mr. Shupe, leading a select group of LHS students in a patriotic piece.

I'm glad you got to enjoy in the festivities of Memorial Day. It looks like you had a lot of fun - I know you love a good parade.
Thanks for the video of Shupe. It was fun to see him directing and to hear the mini-band playing. It seems so long ago that I was in that type of situation. I love you!
