I could hear country music playing. Standing in front of the main doors to the school was a color guard of high school students in their everyday clothes. Each had a flag. There was also an enormous flag hanging down from the front of the school.
It was clear that the music I was hearing was patriotic, but it was a song I hadn't heard before.
It was clear that something very special was happening today.
Then I remembered #2 telling me he was going to what I think he referred to as "Living History Day." Once I recalled this, I realized what was happening.....Veterans from past wars were arriving and they were being honored as they entered the school.
What an awesome thing!
How wonderful that they are honored in such ways, and we become blessed by their efforts.
