It was in 1952
Drum beat echoed off the buildings and up and down the Valley. Each drummer was in perfect sync, the drum rising and falling with each step, on their knee. Their uniforms were perfect as were their lines, never missing a beat; It would make your hair stand up on the back of your neck, and you would get goose bumps; as you watched, and listened to Taps being played. Kids watched their parents as they saluted and placed there hand over their heart. They followed suite.
The Flags flying in the breeze and the one Flag that that was above the others. It was the greatest presentation of the American Flag, that a small boy could witness.
He asked his Father, " Daddy why do I feel funny and get goose bumps when the Flag goes by?"
He said, " That's because you are an American, Son."
He knelt down so the boy could hear him better, and looked the boy in the eyes, repeating to him...
That's because you are an American, Son, The Father said, " I feel that way, too."
The boy smiled at his Father, being satisfied of his answer, as his father hoisted him up on his should, for a better view. He thought, I'm an American.
We need to tell our kids who they are.
