It’s America’s birthday and I’m celebrating. My Army Sergeant son is visiting, in preparation for going to Japan–Okinawa. My Navy Lieutenant daughter’s still in the DC area but moving on to a new job with the Navy. Usually she calls 4-7 times a week. Soon, it will be much less. Sigh. I’m here, thanking both of them and all those soldiers who fought for America’s uncertain future so long ago.
God be with all of us.
