“You’re a grand old flag…”
In fourth grade Billy asked Nancy to be his square-dance partner.
“…you’re a high-flying flag…”
He invited her to the seventh grade sock hop. To his surprise she accepted.
At senior prom he gave her a diamond. The next week he left for Vietnam, her promise in his heart.
“I’ll save all my dances for you, Billy.”
He returned missing a leg, fearing the worst.
“…in peace may you wave…”
After fifty years the diamond sparkles on her finger as she squeezes his hand. “Frankly, Bill, you were never much of a dancer.”
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
(To those who celebrate it.)
Thank you to the men and women who have served their respective countries.
