I imagined the surfeit of…

As I peered at the old barn, I imagined the surfeit of blood, sweat & tears that has been put into that American Flag. Not in the process of painting the flag on the old barn boards, but the surfeit of hearts from all our military men & women. They ALL are the reason we are able to celebrate the USA’s birthday! Thank you, each & every one of you!!!
