Morgan Lally, the 13 year old sister of Army Specialist Brennan Lally, has been wearing a locket with her brother’s picture in it, since he left for Iraq last June. “It makes me feel close to him”.
Now she can feel even closer to him, since her brother arrived home, to a hero’s welcome, parade and all on Friday, July 8. Just before he pulled into town, family, friends and neighbors of Jackson, Michigan, gathered their flags and their signs and lined the street. “Turning down the street and seeing everyone I know and love, is mind blowing” says Brennan. “It is nice to be back on base, but nicer to be home”.
I am sure Brennan’s family feels the same way!
Find out for yourself by visiting the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. The exhibit is the centerpiece for the city’s “Summer of Washington” series. The focus of the exhibit is to show George Washington, the real man, through videos, live performances, models, relics, even the locket that contains actual strands of his hair!
The exhibit encompasses his life starting as a surveyor through his presidency, including his married life and home at Mount Vernon.
The exhibit runs through September 5.

A house needs a Grandma in it. When 16 year old Donna was heartbroken over a recent break-up with her boyfriend, Grandma shared some of her life experiences. Donna was surprised to hear the story but equally surprised when Grandma left a gift on her pillow that night. Read the whole story.
Lockets are treasured keepsakes that are meant to be shared as they are passed down from generation to generation.
Just look at the recently updated online version of the Oxford English Dictionary and LOL! The word “heart” is now a verb. We have been “hearting” ourselves for years now, both online and through texting, why not make it official?
