Hero

"This nation will remain the land of the free 
only so long as it is the home of the brave." ~ Elmer Davis

Today, I honor all of the brave men and women who have served our country, and I think about my dad. In fact, I think about him every day as I stand to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. I am humbled by the courage it must have taken to enlist in the Navy when he was only seventeen years old, to leave his family and travel around the world to defend our freedom. For this, and so much more, he will always be my hero.
