Feeling privileged to participate in Wreaths Across America today. The organization coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 1,600 locations across the United States, at sea and abroad. Today, I am in Indiana laying wreaths in Concord Cemetery, which is southwest of my hometown of Churubusco. This is my first Wreaths Across America, and it is emotional. There are only about twenty of us at this tiny cemetery in the middle of cornfields, and no ancestors of our own. It is powerful to remember and to honor the sacrifices these and other soldiers and their families made. They gave their lives for our freedoms, freedoms which I try hard not take for granted. I am counting my blessings today and every day.
Just some wholesome food-lovin’ farmers sharing about life on the farm.
