What Better Place to Spend this Solemn Day
Listening to the news this morning and remembering 911 was more than I could bear. It has been 12 years, but seems only like last week. With all of the craziness in the world, I just needed to be outside somewhere in a tranquil setting.
What better place to spend 911 than in a National or State Park?!!? Apparently, dozens of others thought the same thing. Although no one was on the Four Seasons Trail, when I got up to the parking lot, there were several dozen people. Climbing the stairs to the Chimney was poignant as the flag was flying at half mast.
I am so proud to be living in this country where we allocate money and resources to protecting our parks and public lands. And, I am thankful for all of those that are willing to fight for our freedoms and our way of life and our land.
