Lovely girls gather around the computer screen respectfully waiting for the veteran to speak. Tomorrow they will gather downtown to witness the brief procession that will walk (or wheelchair) its way to the memorial at the park. There will be a speech and the shooting of firearms and tears. We want to know. We want to show respect. Tomorrow we will make a concentrated effort to say thank you, face to face.
And my friend the fiber lady sent me home with a goody bag!
