Memorial Day Remembrance

Kern and I rode our bikes to Arlington and spent time walking the cemetery and taking in the sacred ground of such a special place.

We overheard parents teaching their children about the sacrifices that have been made so that we can feel safe and free in our country.

We saw a gravesite overflowing with flowers and attached to them was a single "Happy Birthday!" balloon waving in the breeze.

We saw volunteers placing single red roses on each of the uniform headstones.


We saw a young woman sitting on the ground in front of a grave in the newer section of the cemetery.  I don't know if she was a wife or a sister.

To all the men and women who have served and are serving: thank you.

Thank you for putting others first.
Thank you for setting an unselfish example of service.
Thank you for loving our country.
