Sometimes it's hard for me to believe that 6 years ago Rob was in Iraq...this photo below was taken by one of the women took at the airport the day he left to go back. Every soldier was given 2 weeks R & R to come home mid-deployment. Thank you to all of those soldiers to help assure our independence and freedom!
I just read this book A Long Walk to Water (found in the juvenile fiction section at our local library) and highly recommend it! My 10 year old daughter actually read it before me... It takes place in Sudan, one of the countries where there seems to be constant wars. The life of Salva Dut is amazing, and his mission to help get clean water for the people of Africa.
There are so many things I take for granted, living here in America...like living with freedom to do what we wish and drinking clean water!
Have a wonderful Independence Day!!!
