An 11 Year Olds Way of Saying Thank You!

He held the salute for an hour and a half and quietly hummed the old songs his heroes would have loved and thought of those who lived their final moments on that spot. He only broke his salute briefly to wipe away tears. I only wish I could have been there to join in his salute. I would not have taken a photo however, I would have just imbibed the moment as this young man, living in the present, honored those of the past.

    What a beautiful story thank you for sharing it with us. It brought tears to my eyes. That young man symbolizes everything that America stood for in the past…..We need to restore that spirit because America is worth saving!!!!!
