An American Star @acummings

A card & a star mean so much

A card & a star mean so much

Yesterday I went to my mail box and found a card from a friend.  I’ve read it many times since and still well up in tears.  Inside the card was a small 2″ embroidered star cut from an American Flag. In the card it read:

I am a part of our American Flag.  I have flown over a home in the U.S.A.  I can not longer fly.  The Sun and the Winds have caused me to become tattered and torn.  Please carry me as a reminder that you are not forgotten.

My friend, you are also an American Star in my eyes.  Thank you.
