Roads traveled. I took the road home through downtown Naperville yesterday, after an appointment. As I was approaching one of the High Schools I noticed a sea of Red White And Blue. A beautiful sight of hundreds of Old Glory waving in the afternoon sun.



"First known as Armistice Day in recognition of the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I, the holiday was first proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919. In 1938 Congress declared each November 11th a legal holiday and in 1954 replaced "Armistice" with Veterans."

From those first Patriots who helped to form this great country of ours to those who are serving today. And to those who gave their life last week at Fort Hood.
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.... Thank you.

Hi Mary,

It must have been a lovely sight, seeing all the flags, waving in the wind.
Good to remember the Veterans and all they did. Thank you for sharing this.

Have a great week
