Yesterday our church had a patriotic concert that made me feel so proud and so thankful for all those who have helped to make us free. It wasn't religious in anyway, they do this every year or two and several church choirs and musicians are involved but mostly it is our church.

I know other places do similar tributes to our founding fathers and those who have come since them, but after living in states on both coasts plus states in between, I have to say, no place seems to horror our country quite the way people in our part of the nation do. I don't think it is only Bella Vista or even NWA I think it is just something that is probably done throughout the middle region of America.

To see all the service men and women stand when the song that represents their branch of the service, whether they fought in WW2,Korea or as recently as Iraq would put a lump in anyone's throat. Then to watch 4 little girls, the oldest about 12 sing about what it means to be an American, regardless of your race or color, knowing these kids mean what they are singing made my eyes fill with tears, tears of pride. 300 people sat in the church yesterday and about the same number attended the second presentation.

I hope everyone not waste their energy on protesting what our country does, use it to thank those who have served and are still serving. Be proud of what so many before us have done to keep us free.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA FROM NW ARKANSAS!!!

ok, so I type too fast, added to my dyslexia, and having one of those nights where my mind wouldn't shut down I guess proof reading would have helped. At least I can laugh at myself. Thanks for making me smile. It is just too bad I can't correct it, but at least it will give us something to talk about. I just hope no one really thinks I mean Horror!!!!
