Hand over Heart

Camden and I went to the BYU Homecoming Day Parade this morning.  I was excited because I really thought he would enjoy it!  He's such an inquisitive little guy, so I just figured he would love it!  They marched down the street and the DJ announced for everyone to take off their hats to show reverence to the flag as the BYU Air Force ROTC presented the flag and the Army ROTC followed close behind.  Immediately, I was overcome by emotion.  Emotion I had NOT expected at such a happening moment in time.  Even as I write this, I get choked up and a knot in my stomach.  I just love this country in which my family and I are blessed to live!   And I love those who sacrifice their lives and families to protect us and our freedoms.
