Notes from the Waxhaws

Here at the beginning

It’s been a quiet 4th of July around here.

Less than two miles from home is a cemetery at the historic Old Waxhaw Presbyterian Church. This burial ground contains the remains of many who were here at the beginning of our nation…some who actually fought and shed blood in those early days… for the freedoms that we enjoy today. They still cast long shadows…and although celebration is good…sometimes silence can speak volumes.
