lovett-at-capitolThe Wake and District Public Safety Pipe Band was honored to have participated at the North Carolina State Capitol July 4th Celebrations; it was a wonderful way – as a band – to celebrate our Nation’s independence. While walking to the Capitol grounds a reporter asked us – “…what does freedom mean to you…”    Looking around we saw young and old, black and white, men and women draped in red, white and blue being patriotic as the Nation’s newest citizens (people who gave up their citizenship in another Nation to become citizens of the United States of America) were being sworn in during a naturalization ceremony on the steps of the North Carolina State Capitol while protestors were across the street ballywicking their causes.  What does freedom mean?  Look around because it is something we take for granted every day.

Some photos of the band at the event can be seen here.
