Salute

Photo by SnaggleTooth 2009



To all who've served freedom-

The injured returned,
Ones who were lost,

Three World Wars
Police actions intense.

Yes I think it's a very important thing to remember all the people that have lost their lives, and continue to, so that we can have our freedom.

Very nice.

Always great to see these kind of photo montages with the weather being so perfect, as if God specifically decided to wait until the appropriate moment to unleash his very best for such a solemn occasion.

Btw readers, The flags were at half-mast due to Ted Kennedy's passing.

LLcoolJ, In the USA, today is a National holiday, Veterans Day, when military folks all over parade down the main roads n the bank is closed. Of Course I had to work, Thanks

G, I thought of your flag pic when I posted it- I love that perfect, summertime mountain weather too! So unlike the low-light, overcast we've been whining about. thanks

Lynn, Thankyou, it was a strange monument- Seems aged but may be from 911. Not sure if the cement semi-circles represent the mountains or the NY bridges.

K, Welcome to ESR. Thanks. I especially like the mountains in the BG. Wish I could've celebrated more.

Talon, here here! ATTN thanks for joining me in my salute, even tho you're in another Northern Country!

JanF, Thanks for the kind words about my offering today- Of course the tough part for me is finding those pics cause I can never remember the date I took them...

MB, wow- Too bad we weren't there the same week. I don't remeber it being there in '04. I think it's great you were having vaca in a place of ancestral roots!

RoseD, Thanks, interesting remembrance, in a way we all wear the sacrifice!
