Happy Birthday, America!

Photo credit to my husband.
Taken from the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor.

We devoted a morning to visiting Pearl Harbor while we were in Hawaii. It was a first for both of us and it was a very moving experience. Although it may seem like a cliche to some, visiting a sacred site like this one reminds one that freedom is not free.

I have (almost) that exact same picture from our trip to the memorial. A day that was very moving, emotional, and remembered.

Happy Fourth!

What a photo. My grandfather was a Pearl Harbor survivor. I can't even imagine. One day I hope to go and visit the memorial.
