Chattanooga, Tennessee, moon pies and chill. Overlooking one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world, Walnut Street Bridge shines. Winter ain’t so bad in a city poised for growth.🤟 #chriskophoto#chattanooga
even though ten thousand other headlines have passed since the bears ears announcement...
On a Sunday not too long ago, I got to go hang out at an incredibly cool national monument - for free. Hundreds of other people, regardless of the $ they had in their IRA or their station in life, joined me to enjoy the Utah wilderness.
Public lands are one of the most equitable benefits we have to share. They are by everyone, for everyone. It saddens me to know that couple can’t bring their daughter to Peekaboo Slots and that family can’t go picnic at Bears Ears. Let’s keep fighting, every day, and do what we can to keep these resources free, fair, and open to all. #notmypresident#bearsears#publiclands#nationalparkservice

Town crier keeping the womenfolk and mob informed on the conversations within.
Just a few of the outstanding loyalists and daughters of liberty debating their ideals!
I had an incredible American experience tonight! Tonight I marched in the 244th Anniversary Boston Tea Party re-enactment. December 16th, 1773 kickstarted the American Revolution as we protested by rejecting a shipment of tea. 🇺🇸
I was initially disappointed that the ticketed seats were sold out, but I actually had a much better time outside. You see, women weren't allowed in the meeting house to discuss the plan for the shipment but they weren't without opinions. They debated amongst themselves in the cold December air, representing diverse ages, families, reputations, and stances.💬❄🗨The actors tonight spoke amongst the crowds and offered banter and debate in between updates from the town crier. 🗣They were fabulous women with lovely costumes (complete with muffs)! Lots of booing and hissing and foot-stomping! HEAR, HEAR!
Then we marched the streets of Boston, stopping traffic, to the drum and fife brigade 🎶 all the way to Boston Harbor where we watched them turn the harbor into a teapot one crate at a time. ⛵Dramatic injury, narration, and an oath amongst the men and countrymen (that's the crowd) to protect the identities of those who committed treason in defiance of tyranny. HUZZAH!✊
It was amazing.
#WreathsAcrossAmerica has become a family tradition. We stand to honor those who stood for us.
“So long as they speak your name, you shall never die.” I encourage you to attend next year’s event at the National Cemetery closest to you. Coordinated ceremonies begin at 12:00pm across America. A beautiful tribute to honor those who valiantly served our great country to ensure they are always remembered. This year Saratoga (and Arlington) had full wreath coverage thanks to those who donated! #GodBlessAmerica#AmericaTheBeautiful#AmericaFirst#ThankYouForYourService
Thank you, Santa Fe Opera, mezzo soprano Sarah Coit, baritone Jorge Espino, Young Voices of Santa Fe, and the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi for a glorious (and free!) holiday concert which will never be forgotten. #santafeopera#sarahcoit#jorgeespino#americathebeautiful
We just love the pictures (and video) we get from the drone! We need to get some snow pics soon before it melts this week. Ohio never fails info the weather department😅 single digit temps and snow, then 40 degree temps and rain.
If you live here, READ IT, Please!! I came across this today while perusing the isles, shelves, tables and floors of my favorite book store in the entire country, and the one I did my very first book signing in years ago, @sundogbooks in beautiful @seaside_newtownoldways Florida. #ifyouliveherereadit#americathebeautiful#seasidefl#thebeachiscalling
The council house at Mission San Luis is a reconstructed version of a building that existed in the 17th century. It was the focus of daily life among Apalachee people and the site of political, administrative and ceremonial activities. .
Every December, thousands of people across America gather at cemeteries to pay their respects to our nation's heroes. Friends, families, and loved ones carry wreaths to their grave stones and lay down these tender seasons greetings. It is a heart warming and tremendous oppurtunity to see the pride and solidarity that our nation has in these moments.
