“137 years later, Memorial Day remains one of America’s most cherished patriotic observances. The spirit of this day has not changed – it remains a day to honor those who died defending our freedom and democracy. ” ~ Doc Hastings
Thank you to all of the men and women who have served this country and fought for our freedom. The freedom so often taken for granted.
John, the kids and I attended the Memorial Day parade this morning. It is such a fabulous event every year and the sense of community is almost overwhelming. We were moved by the number of veterans who participated in the parade, and the response from the crowd. The applause, the smiles, and the looks between veterans marching and those in the crowd were so moving. Below is one of my favorite shots of the day. I love the lighting on the flag in the background. The truck in the foreground, was one of several vehicles transporting veterans in the parade.
