violet_rivers I was driving around Hermann, enjoying the un-seasonally nice February day (this was in 2013), when we made a turn and saw this. A simple red truck parked on a side street, it's cherry red paint shining bright. I had to stop, it was so picturesque and perfect. What could be more American than a red pick up gleaming in the sun while the stoic, old flag flew above? I thought about that truck today. I thought about that flag today. I remember fondly how beautiful it looked in the sun, bright and proud, while twisting and turning with the breeze. I wondered; "how could someone not think this is beautiful?" I thought about how much that flag, something so simple, means to myself and countless other Americans. Today, especially today, it means so much. Today, as we remember those we lost at the hands of terrorists, the countless lives lost for such senseless and hate fueled reasons, I think of that flag fondly. I think of the images forever seared in my mind of the destruction, the rubbles, the pieces we as Americans were left to pick up. But, I also think of the hundreds of American flags perched high on their poles, placed in windows, and worn on coats; a sincere sign that "You can try, but you cannot break us." The beautiful and unwavering American spirit is still within us all - the terrible events which plagued our great nation thirteen years ago have done nothing to falter our great spirit. If anything, it has made it, and us, stronger. Take a moment today to pray for those who were lost and their families, to pray for our heroes - the men and woman of our armed forces, our police and firefighters, as well as those in the background. Take a moment to remember. And, take a moment to be thankful for something as simple as the American flag. May if fly forever. God bless America! 1w

After driving about 190 miles yesterday, I had to run to Slater, MO adding another 2 hours and around 120 miles to my drive.
