Flags




Another experience that i wanted to relate was when we went with the exchange kids to visit Pearl Harbor. When we went out to the memorial that stands over the U.S.S Arizona there was a park ranger there that was trying very hard to untangle the HUGE American flag that flys over the memorial. It was a very windy day and she was having a very hard time... Some of our kids stepped in to help and it ended up being a lenghy period of time they were needed. Some of the kids caught some great shots of them helping with the flag and after it was over and we were walking away. Some of the kids mentioned how cool it was to be part of that and said it was one of the coolest things they had ever been apart of. It was nice to see the respect and excitment the kids had for the flag of our country. We were so proud of them for offering to help. Really, a great group of kids!
