Burlington Flats NY, 5/26/14
I love a parade. It's the American way, sunshine, little kids having fun, the good smells coming from the barbeques along the route, the drummers beat making me stand taller and making me glad I'm here today. Our men and women that fought for our freedom in foreign lands are here, and were it not for them we might be marching to a drum beat not of our making.
