Freedom

 
Raised in a family
that served in the military,
I have always been
patriotic.
 
My heart always swells
when I see a flag...
or an eagle.
 
Not the best
photos, I know,
but none the less,
I want to share them.
 
 
It's a reminder to spread our wings...




to reach beyond the stars,
to do the best we can,
to achieve.






And to enjoy our freedom.

*I wrote this prior to the tragedy in Boston.
God Bless America.
United We Must Stand.
