Apologies for not posting yesterday. I wanted to share our 4th of July Celebration Small Town Style. I want the world to know…that here… It is everywhere.
We followed it at the front of the parade. It lined the streets.
It’s on the back of a horse drawn wagon.
It’s on the competitors in different forms and styles.
It’s on rodeo clowns and rodeo judges and rodeo spectators.
In different shades, it appears on chutes and wild horse contestants. It was there. It was everywhere. Three basic colors that stand for Something.
Something that we in small towns are PROUD to carry and display and wear and decorate with and show off and salute and support and believe in.
Something that the Wyoming Army National Guard 115th Fires Brigade recently deployed to Kuwait are willing to defend and serve with the ultimate sacrifice.
Here in Small Towns… three colors mean patriotism. A touching salute to patriotism is movingly portrayed in the movie Taking Chance with Kevin Bacon. It’s about a Wyoming boy… coming home. Watch it on the 4th of July. Watch it on Memorial Day. Watch it when another boy has to come home.
Keep your kleenex close at hand.
Those of you that are/were in the military…thank you so much for your service.
It was there.
It was everywhere.
God bless the U.S.A.Find me here!
