Top Ten: Patriots


This is a great way to begin the actual Top Ten of 2021.

On September 12th, I did what I've been doing the past nine years-- attending the SGT Jan Argonish Memorial Bike Ride in Jessup.  SGT Argonish died in Afghanistan in 2007.

I never met Jan, but I do know his parents, and they are great people.

I always avoid taking photographs during the national anthem, but I made an exception this year.  It was a powerful scene-- bikes, flags, heads bowed as they remembered a young man who served his country with honor and dignity.

I just had to snap a photo.  No disrespect intended.  In fact, it was just the opposite.  I wanted to show how people respected the flag, the country and a soldier.

Tomorrow, history bites the dust.
