ANNAPOLIS, Md. —On a cul de sac in a quiet Annapolis neighborhood, something has recently become a morning routine.
"I needed these kids to have a normalcy and I needed it," said Danielle Lawrance.
Lawrance and her daughters Olivia and Emilia walk to the end of their driveway to meet their neighbors and say some familiar words. Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance may have started as a way to keep a little familiarity for the kids, but it didn't take long for the whole cul de sac to join in.
"It just warms our heart. We're a military family and we consider these people are shipmates, which is a very endearing term in the Navy," said Kathie Morrison.
