Congrats, Little Brother

Congratulations to my brother who graduated from the police academy today! He has been preparing for this day for a long time and we're all so very proud of him.

We trekked down to Richmond, Ky. so we could be there for the morning ceremony. The kids had a blast staying in the hotel and I enjoyed traveling through Central Kentucky, an area of the state that I love (all those gorgeous horse farms). It was a very moving day, seeing my brother in his uniform, and seeing all of the tradition and honor that involves being a police officer. I greatly admire the young men and women who enter into such service. They are out there protecting us and I am grateful to them. There were five members of the class who have also served in the military - again, I am honored to be in their presence.

On the way home this afternoon, I passed a church that was displaying three crosses and it brought to mind the solemnity of the day. I hope all of you who celebrate Easter have a blessed weekend.
