It's Flag Day. Five years ago today, we had a wonderful celebration at our local elementary school as we opened a time capsule buried in 1976, the Bicentennial year. We handed out red, white and blue pencils. My children, including Thomas who was just finishing his junior year of high school, helped inflate balloons with helium. It was an incredibly sweet moment of Americana. Three months later, that world came to an end. But that day, and for the rest of the summer, we seemed to live in sunlight.
