July 4, 2004. Proudly carrying on a tradition established by my brother…

This special┬átradition was established by my brother in the aftermath of 9/11-every 4th of July our family gathers at his farm on the OK prairie-we create our own parade to the nearest overpass to stand and wave the flag for an hour or so. Like so many rituals and traditions, it isn’t just the act of standing and waving the flag-it is getting the flags out, some years we decorate the trailer, making our way to the overpass, laughing and celebrating when we get a series of enthusiastic honkers. It is being together-it is family-it is everything callmesister.com believes in and wants to share. God Bless you and your family-I hope you were able to gather with family and loved ones, and that having some time to reflect on the freedoms that allow us to do so freely will motivate each of us to speak with civility and respect when expressing our desires for our nation’s future-our future as Americans.
