Patriotic Pens

patriotic sing-along

We took a fun photo after class with everyone waving their patriotic pens that I gave away (Lynn Liu made the pens for our annual 4th of July party at home).

“During this time of not feeling good about the direction our country is going, it felt so good to sing uplifting songs – to be proud to be an American,” commented a participant after the program.

One of the new participants was my husband’s high school homeroom teacher, Brother Tom Spring, from Oahu who had recently moved to Maui.
