A day to remember and appreciate. Eight years ago I was with my oldest son at his sixth grade camp on a long hike. A huge swarm of ladybugs surrounded us on one of the mountaintops, it was one of the most amazing things I had ever seen. When we got back to the campground, we were informed of the occurrences going on around the country, there was no televisions there, just someone that had called to let the teachers know what had been going on. None of us had any idea how truly heartbreaking it was until we arrived home to witness it for ourselves on our own televisions. Truly tragic. Remember what it is we have to be grateful for; freedom, opportunity and service.
