Remembering

It’s Memorial Day in the U.S., a day to remember those who gave everything in the service of their country. I am a child of the Vietnam war era. From my first recollections until my junior year of high school, the war was a part of my consciousness.

I don’t personally know anyone who died while serving in the military. But I think that’s the point. A few have served and made the ultimate sacrifice so that the many may enjoy the freedoms that this country offers.

For that I am thankful.

Update:
Points of Light is a featured favorite in this week’s Moody Monday photography meme. Photographers are invited to submit photos related to the week’s particular theme. A photo I had taken in Bermuda, and posted here several days ago, was one of five chosen by this week’s jury for the theme of “foreign.”
