Happy Fourth of July!

Dear Canopy Patrons and Customers,

Recently I was thinking about what specials we might run at Canopy to get everyone in the mood for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday when I was reminded of a recent trip to the airport a few weeks back. My husband and I were returning from a trip and as we departed our plane and made our way through the terminal to baggage claim, we noticed a long line of soldiers also returning home from a tour of duty in service of our nation.

As the soldiers passed by, the hallway split. Most of us not in uniform had stepped to the side and stood respectfully as they walked by. Some older gentlemen, former soldiers themselves I presume, stood at attention, and a few youngsters did as well, emulating the pose of their fathers and grand fathers.

The moment was a bit of a shock, but also a wonderful and uplifting surprise. It was a fantastic reminder of who we are as a nation and what it means to be an American.

I am proud of our great nation and I hope all of you are as well. This coming Fourth of July, when you are relaxing with friends and family, please take a moment to remember the sacrifice and work it takes to earn these small moments of peace and happiness.

Have a great holiday and I hope to see you all soon at Canopy!

-Carol Sandlin
