July in Kentucky.
When haze lifts, we notice fields of corn are high as an elephant’s eye.
Family reunions, picnics, community festivals, little league baseball all-star games and always, the troops. Ahead of all else, soldiers in uniform and civilians who serve, should be close to mind every day and certainly during the first week of July. It’s a freedom kind of month.
Heroes, too. In sports, here’s one: Mark Grether in Louisville’s Catholic Youth Football League.
