My article "Independence Day Brings Echoing Strains of Taps" appeared July 1, 2011, in the Faith column on www.TheChristianPulse.com.
If you've never read or sung the lyrics to the familiar song "Taps," you can find them in that article. To me, they are hauntingly beautiful and comforting.
Hope you had a happy and safe 4th of July. May God continue to bless America.
