Liberation Day

man with carabao
Tomorrow is Liberation Day on Guam -- commemorating the landing of US troops on the island on July 21, 1944 -- marking the beginning of the Battle of Guam -- and the release of the Guamanians from Japanese captivity.

It's the biggest annual party on the island and people are already camped out on Marine Corps Drive in preparation for tomorrow's parade. As we were leaving worship at the Lutheran Church of Guam (also located on Marine Corps Drive) this morning this camper and his carabao were crossing the street in the rain.
