Memorial Day

30 May

20130507-222103.jpg

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States. On this day, which occurs every year on the last Monday of May, we remember the men and women who have died while serving our country.

Many people on this day will visit cemeteries and memorials placing an American flag at graves to honor our fallen heroes. Let’s remember that appreciation is not only one day out of the year – it’s year round.

.

Thank you to all of those who have died while serving our great country! I think this picture says it all.

    It’s truly a day to remember……living in the land of the free and the home of the brave because of them……

    Hugs, Sammy

    What a poignant (my new word) picture. It portrays not just once a soldier always a soldier, but how we continue to see ourselves even though our external appearance has aged and changed.

    Brief and to the point! Very well done. The picture at the end choked me up. Tis so true. I’ll bet dad saw himself this way. It seems wrong to say Happy Memorial Day after such a touching picture. So I will say Memorial Day is happening in the States and they are honouring their veterans.

      That’s it in a nutshell my sweet friends. It’s not really a happy day knowing how many sacrificed their lives in order for us to have freedom. It really makes us tear up here. XOXO – Bacon
