Its been a while...
Well, its been a while since I've written anything. This evening, we went to the school for Veteran's Day celebration. Molly sang in the school choir. Our Boy Scout troop put out flags through out the neighborhood. It reminds of the importance of expressing gratitude to all who have served. Sometimes, we get caught up in our lives, that we forget the great sacrifices made to make our country free. Free. It's an interesting word. It denotes a understanding that one is not bound, or under slavery. We all appreciate our freedoms. Freedom to worship. Freedom to assemble. Freedom to bear arms. Freedom from oppression or tyranny. Freedom to pursue life, liberty, and enjoy tranquility and peace. I think what's interesting about freedom is that someone must unbind us to be free. We must be made free, to be free. I am grateful to God for those who have stood up for all of us and created, protected, and defended our rights, privileges, freedoms, and liberties.
