Memorial Day

Wishing a "Happy Memorial Day" is not a real good way to remember the 2,852,901 Americans killed in wars.  I doubt they found anything "happy" about that honor.

For a good visual of how many service men and women have died for us, the living, Google Arlington National Cemetery Images.  And as you look at the rows and rows of plain white crosses, thank them in your own way.  Simple appreciation for their sacrifices - not just dying on strange ground; boot camp was no day at the beach either - quietly think of them in your mind.

One of the most poignant pictures was a winter shot with Christmas wreathes,  each carefully placed evenly  with  the cross - nearly covered with snow.   Not much of a Christmas for them.
