Yesterday at church, the pianist played a medley of patriotic songs* while a slideshow played overhead.  One of the pictures was the Iwo-Jima-like one of the firefighters at Ground Zero.  I’m sure you know the one I mean.

Raisin asked me about it.  As she’s 5, and as the service was about to start, I gave her the barest of explanations.  Even still, I couldn’t get through it without crying.

Hug a hero today.

*Including a very cool section of the hymns of each branch of the Armed Forces.  The veterans of each stood up for their hymn.  What a great idea!
