My entire life I was raised to stand and salute when a flag of red, white, and blue marched by.
As as child, I would wake at 6am to my father blasting "Stars and Stripes Forever," or "Battle Hymn of the Republic," and I ate up every minute.
It is one of my favorite days of the year!
We are so blessed to live in this country that its almost incomprehensible.
Today is a day for CELEBRATION!!!!!
