But every November, the Veterans Day parade is held, and I think, again, to myself, "I'm so glad for our small town. I'm so grateful for our country. I'm so thankful for those who served in the armed forces and made so many sacrifices for our freedom!"
It is a pleasure to see them ride by, to look in their faces and try to imagine what life was like for them as soldiers, to watch their faces light up during this event that is devoted to them. It is a joy to honor them!
The weather was gorgeous--couldn't have been prettier this afternoon.
