American Pride on 9/11

Driving South on I-95 to Washington, DC yesterday, just North of Baltimore, I saw several firetrucks and numerous flashing lights, and thought that there must be a terrible accident ahead.  Instead, on an overpass those firetrucks carried the American flag, and dozens of enthusiastic and patriotic Americans waved at all the cars passing underneath.  We waved back, and my wife took their photograph below.  At 15 years, although this national wound remains raw, we are healing, and this simple example of American pride moved me.
