I'm proud to be an AMERICAN.


On Memorial day, our family went to the cemetery in our town and had one wonderful experience. We were able to see all of these flags, each flag represents a vetran who has passed away. Their families have donated a flag to represent them. There were hundreds of flags. I know you cannot fully understand the magnitude of the amount of flags. It was so awesome. As we were looking around we hear in the distance a brass band. So, we drive up to the upper cemetery and there are hundreds more flags, and a brass band playing songs from the different war eras. WW1, WW2, and Vietnam. There were volunteers passing out ice cream cones. It was a real experience. I am so glad we took the time out to see and think of those who have worked so hard for us to be free.
