A Memorial Day Sunday Montage of images and thoughts

 A  Memorial Day Montage

While we visit sales and fire up the BBQ and attend parades or just veg in front of the electronic babysitter here are a few other images to consider on this Memorial Day holiday weekend.

*****

 

Memorial Day Severe Weather Threat…..If only that was the only threat to freedom…..and to the memory of those who paid a price.

 

 Something to remember…

the Price continues to be paid and the Cost to be counted

 

In the everyday pressure of battle…

Men give their lives less for freedom than for each other.  

In that lies the glory.

 

Some live only in memory and have no marker to remind us as they await the day of resurrection.

 

They were the candle that held freedom’s beacon in their lives and death…

we are now the mirror that reflects and holds the meaning of that light in trust.

 *****

 Whatever our politics or our religion, we are united in being Americans blessed with freedom on this day of memory.  My grateful thanks to all who sacrificed to make it so.

Hugs and Blessings to you all – Jean
