I didn’t do the parade today, but I did enjoy walking down River Street and Broughton Street, here in Savannah, Georgia. Flags were blowing in the wind, hanging from everywhere, and in the hands of veteran well-wishers.
Families walking together, little children asking, “Why are we having a parade today?”
Their parents reply by shaking the hands of the veterans that stood nearby under flags backlit by sunlight.
“Thank you for your service!”
“It was my honor, Ma’am, Sir!”
Saluting, as the children salute back.
