The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave

  Happy 4th of July!

I took this photo during our trip to Washington, D.C. this past May. It was placed at the Vietnam War Memorial by high school students to honor the men from their school that had served. The red, white, and blue stood out so vividly against the green grass.

It was my first trip to Washington, D.C. (Can you believe it? No school trips!) It may sound cliche, but I felt pride in our country and its founders as I viewed the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights for the first time.

Enjoy your celebrations today.
