Statue of Liberty

The Statue of Liberty

When I was a kid, if “The Star-Spangled Banner” was played on TV or the radio, my siblings and I were required by our father to stand. I’m so thankful for that training. I admit I don’t do it anymore, but the impulse remains, the way my heart is moved remains, the respect and reverence remain.

We saluted the flag in school and maybe because of my father, it was a solemn act for me — it never became rote.
