Each night at sunset, in a suburb of Tacoma, Wash., Don Brittain gives a balcony performance of “Taps” – those 24 notes, for more than 700 consecutive nights delight his neighbors. It’s in appreciation for our veterans, and has become a moment of daily reflection for his neighbors – and now me included, all the way across the nation in Texas.
I’m still a bleeding heart for a powerful story teller. Add music, and you’ll get me every time.
To all our veterans, past and present, and to those who remind us to be grateful, we thank you.
