Memorial Day 2012

The image referred too by LW is indeed iconic, but at least to me, none portrays the true meaning of Memorial Day like the following image.  I’m not trying to engage in dueling images, it’s just this one means so much to me.   I posted it last year, and I’ll probably post it every year I draw breath.  It best encapsulates the day’s meaning for me.

Memorial day

Freedom isn’t free.  And it doesn’t come without a horrendous cost.  God bless the fallen.  And God comfort their families.
