Field of Honor

We took our kids to The Healing Field this last weekend. It's a display of 5,000 flags that honor our troops. The display was setup at the Fairgrounds. The flags were placed in a giant field in the shape of the United States. Along with the flags was a traveling replica of the Vietnam Memorial. It was an amazing sight. Very sombering. It made me stop and think about my freedom. Our kids didn't quite understand what it all meant, but they thought that it was pretty cool.
