Saturday – Veterans Day, Thermopolis Nov. 11 

This month’s Still Strolling Saturday falls on Veterans Day when we as a community salute our military men and women who have given of themselves so that we might enjoy our freedoms.  In the eloquent words of Craig D. Lounsbrough, M.Div., “You are silent now who once stood on battlefields ravaged by destruction unimaginable, holding in those desperate places the line of freedom for others you would never know, and who would never know you.  And being one of those you never knew, I would give all I have to clasp your hand one single time, look into eyes that witnessed the bloodied carnage that results when freedom refuses to bow to chains of any kind, and simply say ‘thank you’”.  The displayed art and performances, especially the works by our children, exemplify that freedom.
