It is a ritual of this small town.
Burgers at the VFW.
All ages join in this centrally located establishment for burgers and ice cream. I gaze upon the walls holding photos of faces of men and women I do not know. It is not lost on me the sacrifices that those people and others have made, that allow us to walk freely on these small town streets. I hope my children will never take for granted the freedoms they have, denied to so many in this world.
