Remembering our Past

I love walking through the national cemetery at Shiloh. This time was even more special because the kids were working on the part for their junior ranger badge that dealt with the cemetery. They foudn graves of Confederate soldiers, drummer boys, one of the generals, etc. It was a chance to explain once again how many people gave their lives for our country. The kids are starting to really get it I think. They remembered the manners we should use while visiting and were telling new friends what all these people gave for our country.

Going over the marching that the drummer boys beat out

I hope they always remember.
