That moment when...
« on: September 28, 2019, 09:00:37 AM »
... you walk into a grocery store, in a small town you've never stopped in before, and a man stops you.  He says, "Nice (Appleseed) shirt.  I appreciate what you're doing for this country.  It's important."

You get instantly humbled about the ideals we serve and how much our program affects people.

Have a great weekend.

Most people think I plant trees. Then they get the elevator sales pitch.
Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery
