To me, it represents those generations who came before us. Those hard working dedicated people who fought for our independence, crossed the country in covered wagons, cut timber to build houses, hauled water, moved rocks from fields in order to grow gardens to feed their families, and settled the towns all across the country that we now call home.
It also means we never forget those who served our country regardless of who was sitting behind the desk at the top of the pyramid.
They went where they were told they were needed and did what they were asked to do while we safely slept in our own beds and went about our regular lives.
So, as the day draws to a close, let’s stop a moment before the fireworks start so we can reflect as the sky explodes in a rainbow of color.
A sincere thank you to all of your loved ones who served in the Armed Forces and for the families at home who supported them along the way.
