In a hurry to beat the heat and replen the feed bunk for the remuda, I left the bypass , and eased through the light.>BR?>BR? Before me was a massive American flag hoisted high over the highway by a hook and ladder truck.


It was a sight to behold to say the least, a moment of pride settles in one's throat as you gaze upon it. For a slit second you sit in awe of the huge flag gently snapping in the breeze.

Then you are filled with pride at the site of our nation's flag, you think of the men and women in the Armed Services (now and in the past ) who bravely left the comforts of home to do battle in unknown lands.

The Police on all levels who leave their loved ones every shift not knowing what battles they will encounter in this and surrounding counties.

The Firefighters and Rescue Squad who battle our house fires and respond to the scene of our accidents.

Just before you go under Old Glory... you realize the shadow she casts is creating much appreciated shade for the volunteers who were collecting for the WHAS Crusade for Children in near 90 degree heat.

You smile to yourself, and say a silent "Thank You" to all... - Cynthia A Meyer
