I have 13ad a number of moments in my life when just burst with pride and patriotism and could hardly contain the tears as they rolled down my cheeks. My goodness, I can't hold back the tears when the American Flag passes by during a parade, or when I see an eagle soar, or when I see the big jets fly over in formation. When growing up, my parents always had a big flag hanging from our front porch picture window on special holidays, but I truly believe a big part of my deep feeling of patriotism started when I was in el- ementary school. From kindergarten through sixth grade, every day was started by standing and saluting our flag with our hands over our hearts as we said the Pledge of Allegiance. On Armistice Day November 11 (now called Veterans Day), all of the classes met in the main hallway as we quietly stood waiting for the pre- cise hour of 11 a.m. Then, our school janitor, Mr. Bruce, raised the flag, we observed a moment of silence, said the Pledge of Allegiance and sang "America"... remem- ber, "My country 'tis of thee.., sweet land of liberty...". Another one of those "pride" moments came this past week when my grandson, Alex, returned home after completing boot camp in San Diego, CA and be- coming a full-fledged Marine. What joy friends and fam- ily felt as he, along with his dad, mom and brother ar- rived at the Des Moines International Airport. Signs, bal- loons and small flags announced to all that he had accom- plished one of his goals - that of becoming a Marine. I didn't think I had any more "pride" tears left, but Sunday morning when I saw him head into the church in his dress uniform.., well, needless to say there were more tears welling up. "Now," I said to myself, "that's it! No more." After church we went into Des Moines to eat. As we left the restaurant, a gentlemen was going out the door when he turned, went up to Alex, shook his hand and thanked him for serving. Yup, I had to really fight; but darn, when pride takes over, it just takes over. The only downside in all the excitement is that Alex was on crutches and had a brace on his leg. During the final event of training, he tore his ACL in the right knee. He now has returned to San Diego where he will have surgery and then receive several months of physical therapy before he goes into the next phase of his train- ing. Alex resided in a Russian orphanage until he was eight years old. I am sure all of that comes into play with my emotions and pride. Alex understands more than a lot of us the true meaning of "sweet land of lib- erty" and the song's ending, "let freedom ring."
