Young Patriotism

We had our annual July 4th breakfast at the church this morning where L and FG were part of the flag ceremony.  A young mom in our ward originally from Ukraine talked about the reasons she is glad to be an American citizen.  Hot water, electricity, variety of foods, freedom of religion and expression, just to name a few.  I left feeling more thankful than I have in a long time for all of my blessings as a member of this great country.  Thanks Olga!

Mmm. Sounds like it was great. I often feel out of touch with patriotism and flag-waving, which seems to have lost the original focus.
