Large Headed Presidents September 3, 2021

Power and Patriotism…

Today we saw 2 beautiful national monuments. Early in the day we walked around Devil’s Tower in Wyoming. We marveled at the unusual rock tower that rose to the sky, smelled vanilla in the bark of the trees, and held our breath as we watched a few brave climbers scale the rock wall toward the top. This evening we went to a truly beautiful ceremony at Mount Rushmore that talked about the hardships suffered and personal sacrifices made by each of those 4 presidents to promote the ideals of freedom, equality, beauty, and a government run by its people. They then played a beautiful short film, ending in the lighting of Mount Rushmore at night and asked that all the veterans in the audience come down onto the stage to help lower and fold the flag for the night. Everyone cheered for and acknowledged those on the stage. I find I am sometimes cautious watching these events, given the volatile nature of our country’s politics these days and my fear of anyone feeling excluded or attacked. Tonight there was a sense of awe, beauty, connectedness, and true appreciation for those values that bring us together in the name of good and something bigger.
