Theme – Symbol of Freedom by Kim
My husband and I stayed a weekend in Woodstock, Vermont and it was their anniversary which they celebrated with a parade and town festivities. The American Flag of course is our country’s symbol of freedom but even more important are the men and women who choose to defend our freedoms and put their lives on the line everyday.
I am thankful to the marine behind the wheel as well as all our servicemen today and in the past. The words “Semper Fi” on the side of the jeep means “always faithful” or “always loyal”. In the United States it is best known as the motto of the United States Marine Corps.
As I reflect this week of the 14th anniversary of the attack on our country, I feel it is important to strive to be loyal to our country, our leaders and our military. God Bless America today and always.
I used a watercolor filter on this photo to create an artsy feel.
