On the morning of the 4th of July, we went to Scituate's celebration because Brendan was going to give a speech! It went really well. He spoke about the burden placed on soldiers and families back home. The people in attendance responded really well! We thought that it might be rained out because it was pouring as we were driving from Marshfield to Scituate but the rain stopped and it cleared up just as we were getting there!! General Casey also spoke so that was really cool as well although the best thing that happened was that Emmy lost her other front tooth during General Casey's speech! An elderly woman sitting behind us watched it all unfold and gave Emmy a dollar for being so brave!!
The next day there was an article in the Patriot Ledger that highlighted Brendan's speech - the picture of him was enormous!!
