Burlap Wreath

A couple of weeks ago, I made this burlap wreath.  I saw some on pinterest.  I finally finished it today by putting a black & silver bow on it.  The wreath is really easy and fun to make.

For many years, my husband and I have driven past the grounds where this impressive statue stands.  It is on the way to one of our favorite antique malls in Emmitsburg, MD.  You can't see this from the road, and the facilities are taken care of by FEMA.  Firefighters are trained there.  So we made a U-Turn and entered the street and were greeted by armed guards.  They took our drivers licenses and kept them while we were given a map and told how to go back to see the statue as well as all of the names imprinted in the bricks that you have to walk on to get to the site.  We were told "DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE".  You can best believe we followed their instructions.  We had no idea this place was so secure.  When you see this unbelievably large beautiful statue, you can't help but feel overcome with emotions remembering that day.  I can't put it into words.  It was a very moving experience.  How and WHY would we ever forget that horrific day?  How can we forget how our world was changed?  I can't imagine how many lives have been changed forever because of these acts of terrorism.  I'll bet there are too many for statisticians to count.
