The Healing Field
Today I went on my own little field trip to Rotary Hill which is a place in town that we go sledding in the winter and listen to concerts in the summer. This week they've done something new. They have put up 2,009 flags to honor those that have fought for our country. I just had to go and take a look. What a beautiful sight! They call it the Healing Field and as I walked around I saw tags that honored family names and the war(s) they fought in. Some even put on tags for the soldiers that lost their lives last week at Fort Hood. I decided I wanted to buy a flag and honor a few of our family members, both fought in WWII. This was a very moving experience and one that I hope Naperville will continue.
