America at Its Finest

Saturday night my husband and I attended a small town rodeo in St. George, Utah. It was packed with families dressed up in cowboy boots and big belt buckles. Snow cones, nachos and hot dogs were feasted upon with great enthusiasm.

Before the start of the rodeo they honored all of the U.S. servicemen who have given their lives for our freedom and they prayed for the men and women who are currently serving our country with honor. They brought out American flags and they sang the national anthem. The announcer prayed for the evening and thanked God for the freedom to pray and to play in freedom. Truly it was America at its finest.

Please let's not take our freedoms for granted. If you are not registered to vote, please go register. The freedom to vote in an election should not be taken lightly--vote. Let's keep America at its finest.
