A perfect moment
On Sept. 7, I attended the 2007 Huff 'n Puff Hot Air Balloon Rally at Lake Shawnee. It was my first time.
The weather was perfect. The hot air balloons were plentiful and colorful. It was amazing to watch as knowledgeable crews methodically unrolled, inflated and launched these huge objects into thin air. Thousands of people attended this free event -- many in family groups.
I saw new babies and all other ages, including great-grandparents. People of all colors and creeds were eating, playing, relaxing, learning and enjoying the spectacle together -- side by side -- in harmony.
Some things aren't right in this world, but some things are perfect in their moment of grace. Congratulations, Topeka.
