This is a shot of DetFan1979 a month or so ago during the "Be a Tourist in Your Own Home Town" in Lansing. Mrs. DetFan1979 and I took our girls to the Capital Building, and the Michigan Historical Museum, among other places. It's a great event that helps remind us there are plenty of great things to see and learn right near where we live.
In this shot, Lions regalia is on full display -- along with a beautiful vintage Civil War Rifle with Bayonet, courtesy of the 7th Michigan Volunteer Infantry, Company B, Inc. If I had more time, I would like to join -- and help educate people about this important piece in the history of our country.
As we all celebrate our freedom this July 4th, lets not forget that Freedom is not just something we won a long time ago, it is something we need to fight to maintain.
Happy Independence Day!!
(For those who are wondering, the little red dot in the "O" in Detroit is a lady bug sticker my youngest daughter gave to me to wear. Of course I did, she's one of Daddy's little angel-cubs.)
PS - I added pictures to give even more life to the broken ninjas, that they may live forever in the DetFan1979 Archives.
