yesterday, i had the extreme honor to go to Washington DC for a veterans conference with my class. we were able to see "The Doolittle Raiders," "The Band of Brothers," Vietnam POW's and more. it made me even more grateful for my dedicated leaders, brave soldiers, amazing country and merciful God. i do not deserve to live life in this country! thank you to all the veterans who sacrificed their lives, so i can live in freedom! (special thanks to my veteran mother, who served in the army!)

the song that these pictures are with is a great song, but montgomery gentry missed a big point. it isn't just that i am "proud" to be American and living freely, it's that i am grateful to God for this life.
but, please enjoy the amazing song, regardless.
