Heroes

FullSizeRenderI had a recipe to post today, but it can wait until next week.  I just returned home from the “Hero Day” assembly at my kids’ school.  It’s a wonderful tradition where they sing patriotic songs; honor local law enforcement officers, firemen and first responders; read “Hero Essays” composed by the 5th grade students; and observe a moment of silence while Taps is being played.  It’s intense and I felt very emotional as I sat thinking of not only September 11, 2001, but also of the men and women who put their lives on the line each day to protect the freedoms this country was founded upon.

My friends, there are heroes among us.  There are heroes who have gone before us.  And there is an entire generation of heroes who need us to teach them what freedom is and how to value it.

I’m flying my flag today in all of their honor.
