It dawned on me this morning that my Sundays are WIDE open now that the NFL is over. I honestly have no idea what to do with myself. Although, I think my cat will freak out if I'm not there on the couch for hours at a time like I was during the season.
At the conclusion of the screening of Red Tails, we came to our feet with thunderous applause. But we did not face the screen. We turned and faced the real Red Tails standing among us, a fitting tribute to the icons that shaped every American Airman serving today.
My Great Uncle Joe was one of the first Tuskegee Airmen. This major piece of family and American history was something I often took for granted. I decided that it was my responsibility to learn much more before seeing Red Tails.
