My husband and I found a cemetery here today and took some time to walk among those who have gone before us. We were especially moved to spend a few moments remembering Mitchell Porter, buried in Shiloh Cemetery, in Pigeon Forge, who was *there* when our nation was born. Think of it.
And to all those who have fought and died since, in service of our country, in defense of my freedom and the liberation of those oppressed peoples around the world...thank you. We owe to you, a debt that can never be repaid.
