Music is what feelings sound like ... - Georgia Cates

There are many patriotic songs out there. I have certainly gotten caught up in listening to several over the last few days when I should have been paying attention to other tasks that needed to be completed. There are many songs I listened to that brought tears to my eyes and a heavy heart. Those emotions are not bad. They are just not emotions I want us to experience on February 4th. In this time, especially in this time, we need songs that bring feelings of joy, purpose, and laughter. Songs that motivate us as well as songs that remind us of the Veterans we are remembering with the works of our hands, hearts, and creative minds. What our feelings should sound like on February 4th is a group connecting across the miles, putting all of our differences aside, and laughing, loving, and experiencing a fellowship that binds us together in spirit.
