Memorial Day





My deepest gratitude for all those who have given whatever it takes to keep me and mine safe and free. Memorial Day began after the Civil War to honor union men fallen in battle. After WWI, the holiday (once known as Decoration Day) included any fallen soldier. (1)



Take a moment today to vist a veteran cemetary or memorial today. If you feel moved to do so express your gratitiude to those who make it possible for me to write this, and you to read it.





(The photo above is not mine. It is however an awsome (public) phote that captures today's thought. The photo is at http://www.flickr.com/photos/sarahbelle1/ , along with more great shots from this photographer.)
