How do dreams feel?

Today Kelsey pledged herself to the United States Army.

As I listened to the chorus of young men and women:
vow to uphold the Constitution of the United States,
vow to defend their country from all enemies, foreign and domestic,
vow to obey the orders of the President of the United States,
and vow to obey their direct commanders, so help me God.

As I watched these young men and women hug with smiles through their tears,  parents, siblings, wives, husbands, and friends.

I thought who would have thought that this is what a dream feels like.

Congratulations, Kelsey, Best of Luck, our love and prayers are with you.

It will be gone before you know it. The fingerprints on the wall appear higher and higher. Then suddenly they disappear.  —Dorothy Evslin
