    Listen, my children, and you shall hear of the the midnight ride of Paul Revere. On the 18th of April in Seventy-Five, hardly a man is now alive who remembers that famous day and year ... Patriots' Day ... Until I moved from Concord, Massachusetts, to the mountains of Utah, I spent Patriots' Day, every year, playing trumpet with the Concord, Massachusetts, Band at the Battlefield where the patriots fired the shot heard 'round the world. Across the street from my front porch in Salt Lake City, the McGillis School flies the American Flag 24 hours a day. On days such as Patriots' Day and the 4th of July, I step out on my front porch with my trumpet and sound the Star Spangled Banner. The flag that flies there, 24 hours every day, was my father's coffin flag. Dad was a B-25 pilot, on active duty during WWII. When he died, while around 80 years old, a Veteran's group donated a huge coffin flag. That flag now flies 24 hours a day. I honor Dad, flag and country. I sound the anthem.
