I Pledge Allegiance

This Wednesday, November 11th  is Veteran's Day, and there is no way we could really express our gratitude to all the veterans over the years. We are so very blessed to be living in a country where men and women are willing to give their lives for us to live in a free America. I am married to one of those veterans, and have several in both our families who were too, and have a lot of friends who are veterans.
I am very proud of them all.
God has blessed America, and we should all ask ourselves what we could do to make it better.
I love to paint flags, and have painted several since 1990.  This is one that I painted this summer, and it now belongs to a man in Tyler, TX. He is in the army. It has the Pledge of Allegiance written on the red stripes.
