Several years ago Ancestry.com, Inc. (then MyFamily.com, Inc.) employees participated in the Grand Parade of America’s Freedom Festival at Provo. We were handlers for a big balloon like the one to the right.
It was a bit tricky maneuvering the balloon around traffic signals and under low-hanging trees. Gloves were a necessity, but wrapping the rope around your hand was a good way to lose fingers.
I don’t want to denigrate our volunteer efforts. Let’s just say we were not invited to help again the next year.
Where am I going with this? Ancestry gave us all matching t-shirts and on this election day I wanted to share the saying printed on them.
Our ancestors lived, sacrificed, or even died that we might live and that we might live free.
