Today’s opening ceremony of the Center Ice televised game between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders was excellent.
After a flag ceremony, both on the ice and from the rafters, the military band played the Star Spangled Banner. Then, Colin Powell tossed the ceremonial first puck.
Take some time today to quiet yourself while giving thanks to all of the military veterans who have given their time and life to provide us with the freedom we have. They make the ultimate sacrifice for us.
