On Earth Day 2010, we were very happy. It was a beautiful day, the sun was out, the birds were singing and we had just heard that we were getting a new roof next week. While the boys were at school we were preparing the Vegetable garden to plant and digging a hole for the new Cherry Tree.
Justin and I looked out over the lake and saw a huge bird over the lake. We couldn't believe our eyes, but after checking later, we found it was true. This huge soaring bird, flying over our lake, black with a white head and tail, was really an American Bald Eagle. It took my breath away. What a wonderful thing to see on Earth Day. An omen of a brighter future for my family and for our country. Like the Eagle that was nearly wiped out, we will survive by our stamina and patience.
