July 4th in Indian Trail

Today was the annual Indian Trail Independence Day Parade.  It’s a fun event with lots of candy being tossed our way by those participating in the parade. The best part for me, is seeing these guys from VF Post 2423 at the head of the parade and hearing the crowd erupt in applause and whistles. It’s POWERFUL! 

As they approached I struggled with do I clap and holler with everyone else, or do I capture the moment, which means I can’t clap, but I can still holler, and I did. I watched as these men marched by knowing that I could never be the kind of men they are. And because I recognize this, I respect and honor them very much. May God bless them, and may God bless (and have mercy) on America.
