And still they wave




"Heart, Mind, Courage, plus a good pair of shoes...all lead us home."
And still they wave...yellow ribbons that ripple in the wind, tied around the family trees in our yard. Yellow ribbons to remind the world of those who stepped up, those who made the choice, committed themselves with courage and honor...to protect the freedoms in our lives. Yellow ribbons to reminds us that though the family tree may grow apart, we all share the same roots...and yes, maybe even a few nuts! Yellow ribbons to remind us that family is where we start... and end. Yellow ribbons to remind us that life's sweetest words are "welcome home"! Yellow ribbons that tell us it isn't about who's blood you share, but about who you care about. Yellow ribbons sent round the world in pictures to remind us that a family shares love that will always endure. Come home soon, son. Your family misses you.
