Part one is here.

The theme of this year’s parade was “Echoes of Success.”

All of the floats in this parade are required to have all surfaces covered by natural materials, such as flowers, plants, seaweed, seeds, bark, vegetables, or nuts. For more, see the 2014 post Decorating parade floats, at my journal.

After composing my own message and sending it at the link above, I wanted to post something about the Standing Rock protest. Patriotism seemed the right perspective.

Also, a result to googling "true patriotism," in case you are interested.

After some of the news this week, I really needed this. Maybe it'll help somebody else's mood as well; who knows?
