Talking with my kids this week about 9/11 and what it means to live in a free country. We spent last weekend hiking and playing in the mountains. After climbing to a lookout tower and visiting with the forest ranger on duty up there, I was struck by the flag fluttering in the breeze. My oldest son saw me taking this photo and said, “This is part of being free isn’t it, Mom? The flag at the top of a mountain like this?”


Yes kiddo, but this is just a part of it.
