i heart ... canada geese

okay, i don't really "heart" canada geese,
but i liked this little experience with canada geese.

so, i was with my cousin cy at the restoring honor rally

(along with 3 aunts, an uncle and some cousins-in-law if there is such a thing).

it was exactly 10am and just the time for the rally to start.
all of the sudden people started clapping and we were like,
"what in the heck?"

then we saw the geese.

we were like, "these people must be really bored
 if they're excited about some canada geese."

then we had this whole discussion about how they are really called
canada geese
canadian geese
like everyone calls them
but how we feel stupid calling them "canada geese" in public
because people think we're the stupid ones...
but really they're the stupid ones.

so that was our conversation.

then i came home from the rally
and i saw this:

now i understand the clapping!
that fly over really was amazing.

i heart... the restoring honor rally

i was so happy to be able to go to the
restoring honor rally
in washington, d.c. on 8/28

it was as wonderful as i'd hoped it would be.
it was such an uplifting experience to be with so many people
of all different backgrounds, but all like minded.

there were two themes to the rally:
to honor the troops
to restore honor to America
by looking to God.

my favorite quote was,
"we as individuals need to be good,
so America can be great."
the Founders knew that the Constitution could only work
if Americans were good moral people.
we need to get back to that.

here is an article from the wall street journal
that represents the rally as i experienced it.
