Greetings to All

We decided to do something in our front yard this
weekend to show our remembrance of those who have
fallen and lost loved ones this week, and our
gratitude for those who will be protecting us in the
upcoming future, and our support for our leaders in
this time of tribulation.

Because we are home-based we built this in our front
yard, but still received a great deal of beeps and
waves of appreciation and understanding.  We built a
spiral walk through heart with red, white, and blue
balloons, with red or blue balloons with stars on top
added to the spiral at intervals throughout the
reversing spirals.  In the center was a large white
latex balloon cross with red, white, and blue foil
stars attached.  Our mailbox had some patriotic foil
balloons and the foil balloon with the Irish Prayer
attached to it, along with a large red, white, and
blue bow.

We also took several of our drop flags to the local
football field on Saturday and placed them on the
pressbox with bows and balloons decorating the area. 
The kids, grades 1 through 8, either sang the Star
Spangled Banner or recited the Pledge of Allegiance at
each game played that day.

It is a shame that it took such a tragedy to reawaken
a spirit that has always been there, but I am relieved
to know it was there and not forgotten as feared at
times in the past.

God Bless You and Yours!
