Life, liberty, justice; frequently these words are scattered throughout our national political bandwidth. These terms represent the deeply rooted feelings of excellence and pride each patriotic American holds as tenets to the very nature of citizenship. One of the most noted representations of this well-deserved attitude of patriotism is our American flag. As CCRWC members, it is our responsibility to serve as shining examples for others.

On Nov. 1, the CCRWC held a Veterans Day celebration at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel and Conference Center to honor the measured efforts and glorious memory of the “Greatest Generation.” More than 200 proud veterans attended, including 57 WWII veterans who nobly served our great country. As a proud daughter of a veteran, and soon to be retired minister, I was delighted to take part in my first official event with this exciting club. As a new member, I was so pleased to jump in and show my support by serving alongside other CCRWC members as an escort for the Veterans who came to the event from various facilities, including The Parc, Presbyterian Village, and Benton House. It is hard to put into words the gratitude and honor I felt when presented with this opportunity.
