Memorial Day...

Memorial Day,
is a day to remember and honor,
those who gave their lives for our freedom.

Last year, we took a trip to
Washington D.C.

Among the memorials there,
one of the most impressive to me,
was the Korean War Memorial.

We were there in the middle of the day. The light was harsh.
But, I can imagine the feeling of lower light...
it probably gives a better feeling of being on patrol.

The artist wanted to make twice as many statues.
But, space did not allow for that.
So, a black granite wall reflects the soldiers...doubling their number.

 Look closely and you can see faces, etched into the stone,
depicting all the branches of the military.

It was very moving, to me.

I am very grateful, to those who have given their all,
for all of us.

Have a safe
Memorial Day
