On this day, Patriot Day, it didn't seem appropriate to list the births, baptisms, marriages and deaths of my ancestors. It is just after 6:00 am here in Chicago and with the sun creeping its way over Lake Michigan, I walked outside to hang my 5 foot x 8 foot United States flag as a way of remembering this day seven years ago.
As if I or anyone could ever forget.
